The climate of Tucson (Arizona - United States of America)
Tucson is a large city located in the southern part of Arizona in the vicinity of the Mexican border. The city is located in Pima County and is surrounded by 5 small mountain ranges: Santa Catalina Mountains, the Tortolita Mountains, the Santa Rita Mountains, the Rincon Mountains and the Tucson Mountains. The highest mountain of the Catalina Mountains is Mount Lemmon which is very suitable as a winter sports destination. This is the most southerly situated winter sports region in the United States. Tucson is located on the banks of the Santa Cruz River. One of the main employers is the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Here the Boneyard can be found which is a scrapheap for army airplanes and helicopters. Hundreds of bombers and F 16s can be found here. It was designated the sole repository of out-of-service aircraft from all branches of the US government. Just outside the city the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum can be found. Tucson has a warm desert climate with low precipitation figures all year round. Summers are dry and warm. During the hottest days temperatures in excess of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) can be recorded. However, average temperatures are just above 35 degrees Celsius (95.0 degrees Fahrenheit). During the winter there is a small chance of subzero temperatures during the night. When subzero temperatures occur snow or sleet may fall. However, it will melt rapidly.
