AZ does rank second among the states in terms of highest temp ever recorded. However, as I noted in a earlier comment, in terms of statewide average temps, the higher elevations up north and the multitude of mountain ranges help offset the really high temps of the desert. And the desert gets cold in the winter, but obviously not as extreme as up north.
Before moving here, I had an image of Arizona as just one vast desert with s Grand Canyon, but there are plenty of mountainous areas including one stretch with the largest expanse of Ponderosa pine in the world.
