The weather is absolutely delightful most of the year in Anthem. The area sees very little rain until monsoon season in late summer where occasional heavy rains fall, thunder booms and lightning brightens the sky. The high heat synonymous with desert living generally takes place in the summer months, but with the Anthem Community Center’s pool and Big Splash Water Park available for use by Anthem residents and their guests, the Country Club’s pool available for its residents and their guests, and cooler weather accessible in the nearby high country, it is relatively easy to beat the summertime heat.
Winters are even better with daytime highs in the 60s and 70s, and crisp, clear nights. Frost is rare, snow almost unheard of. Outdoor dining, either at home or at a fabulous Anthem restaurant, is quite a pleasure in the spring with temperatures in the 70s and 80s. The climate contributes to a relaxed, casual lifestyle that’s difficult to recreate anywhere else.
