October or November for Tucson?

Hello everyone. My husband and I are planning to head south to the Tucson area for 2 weeks in either mid-late October for 2 weeks or the lst two weeks of November. We are planning to rent a vacation rental in the area, still to be determined. However I am still toying with which time period is best for us. We have been to Arizona both in the summer (HOT) and also at the end of Sept (still very hot). I don't want the hot heat, however dry, but would still like warmish temperatures. After all we are coming down from northern Ontario. We do enjoy abit of hiking and plan to make that a good part of our holiday in the area, so tolerable temps for that would be good. The pros and cons of both time periods would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you all in advance.

I can't comment about November, but I did visit Tucson during late October a few years ago. The weather was perfect and I would definitely visit again during that period.

The link below shows historical weather data for Tucson in October. Oct 16 figures are Average Low: 60, Average High:85, Record Low:32 (1899), Record High: 100 (1991).

If you can be flexible with your hiking time and location you should be fine.

October is a transition month, usually this month sees big drops in temps. It has been very cold in Oct in certain years but is usually very pleasant. 50+ years in Tucson and lovin it!

As a native Tucsonan, October has always been my favorite month of the year here. Days are normally warm, but not hot, winds are minimal and mornings and evenings are cool. But a couple weeks later in early November won't be that much cooler on average.

Interesting, while I loved the one time I visited in October, I've enjoyed the late March / early April time frame trips more.

March and April are usually nice, but it's usually much windier than October. And it seems like we get more unusual weather in the spring, too.
