Background, General Information and Weather in San Tan Valley –
San Tan Valley is located in Pinal County, Arizona. As of the last census taken here in 2010 the population was just around 81,000. This area of Arizona is located in the Phoenix Metro Area within the Southeastern suburbs. San Tan Valley is referred to as a “bedroom community.” A bedroom community which is also known as a “commuter town” is a town where the residents normally work elsewhere but live, eat and sleep in the smaller town. This also means that these bedroom communities have very little commercial or industrial activity aside from a few small, locally owned businesses. San Tan Valley is an unincorporated area of Arizona that got its name from the nearby San Tan Mountains. Before this, San Tan Valley was referred to as either San Tan Heights, San Tan Foothills, Greater San Stan or just the San Tan Area. Since this area was clearly suffering from an identity crisis many people who lived here did not know to properly address their mail. So residents in the area started using the nearby town “Queen Creek” for their return mailing address. Then in 2009 the United States Postal Service was petitioned to come up with a new name for the town. For some reason the name “Bella Vista” was proposed but local residents did not like that name at all so it was tossed out. Then in a local vote the name San Tan Valley received the most amount of votes and since then, that has been the permanent name for this portion of Arizona. The climate here in San Tan Valley is categorized as a “Hot Desert Climate.” This means that the summers are going to be extremely hot and very dry and the winters are going to be somewhat cold but clear.

The cool season goes from the end of November until the end of February when the daily average high is just about 72 degrees. The low for this time is a cool 41 degrees. Since San Tan Valley is located in Arizona and is part of a desert climate you can expect to see hardly any rain here. There is around 10 inches of rain here per year and absolutely no snow fall. During the winter however the temperature can fall to just above the freezing mark so there are some mornings when frost is present on cars but usually melts when the sun rises.
