Hi Jules, good to see you about

I dont recall any rain in August for the times I visited this area in the 1990's and the temps in the desert were well over the 100's! Although I do recall driving through a snow shower at the higher elevations towards the Grand Canyon! Sounds like you will have a wonderful time.

We had rain once in Phoenix and Vegas during August, both times it was very brief, which it quite typical of the thunderstroms you might encounter in these areas.

I'm thinking Tempe doesn't get much rain in August. If we do, it'll be a quick monsoon. It wil be HOT though. August is one of our hottest months and we're already a good 10* hotter than average this year.
Enjoying the warmth and sunshine of Phoenix between Disney trips.

HOT in Vegas in August 110+ is common. Not sure about AZ, haven't been there since I was a kid.

Hot in Arizona is 115 and humidity of 80 to 90% in August. We were there one time when it was 117. Too hot even for the water park. We waited till evening when it went down to about 105!
