Due to its subtropical desert climate, Phoenix is known for its hot summers, but it really should be known for its warm winters (ranging from the mid-60s to low 70s) and over 320 days of sunshine. And thanks to the warm weather, Phoenix typically has only five days per year when the temperature drops to or below freezing.
