Weather Information

Knowing our local weather patterns can help you have a safe and enjoyable time on the water!

 

WIND:

This is our biggest concern here on Lake Powell. It is very important to check the detailed weather forecast to check for wind. We use the scale below to determine the difficulty level and how it will affect your day on the water.  Conditions could be worse on the water than what is actually in the forecast especially during monsoon season.

TEMPERATURE:

We are in the high desert at about 4500 ft of elevation, so our normal temperatures can range from the low 100’s in summer to the low 20’s in winter. Our summers are very hot and dry. We can even have snow in the winter.

MONSOON SEASON: 

Typically between June-September. Consequently during this time Microbursts can be common resulting in extreme fluctuations in wind and weather conditions.

UV INDEX: 

Northern Arizona is known for zero to minimal cloud coverage and a UV index up to 7 in the peak of summer. Protection against skin and eye damage is extremely important. Sunglasses, sun shirts, and wide brimmed hats will help with your exposure to the sun.
