SUMMER temperatures on the South Rim are relatively pleasant.  North Rim temperatures are a few degrees cooler due to the higher elevation. Inner canyon temperatures are extreme.  Daytime highs at the river often exceed 105°F.  Thunderstorms frequently occur during July, August, and early September. 

WINTER conditions on the South Rim can be extreme.  The road into the North Rim is closed from the first heavy snow in November or early December to mid-May. 

SPRING and FALL. Come prepared for a variety of conditions. Pleasant weather can change to rain or cold.
