The Tradition[edit]

The PGA Champions Tour golf tournament is no longer held in the Phoenix area.

Climate - days at or below freezing[edit]

The statement:

"Generally speaking, the annual minimum temperature in Phoenix is in the mid-to-low 30s, dropping to or below 32 °F (0 °C) on at least one night per year."

which I have removed once already it is simply not accurate according to the data provided by the given source (the National Weather Service).

The data for the past 20 years for the number of days the temperature reached freezing in Phoenix is as follows:

  • 2014-2015: 1
  • 2013-2014: 0
  • 2012-2013: 4
  • 2011-2012: 0
  • 2010-2011: 5
  • 2009-2010: 0
  • 2008-2009: 0
  • 2007-2008: 0
  • 2006-2007: 2
  • 2005-2006: 0
  • 2004-2005: 0
  • 2003-2004: 2
  • 2002-2003: 0
  • 2001-2002: 0
  • 2000-2001: 0
  • 1999-2000: 1
  • 1998-1999: 1
  • 1997-1998: 0
  • 1996-1997: 0
  • 1995-1996: 0

This clearly shows it does not reach freezing for, "generally speaking", one day each year. It only reached freezing 7 times in the 20 years. I am reverting the change, please do not restore it again without discussing here. MB 00:54, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Reworded it slightly so as to make it a bit more clear, based on the source. The second half of the prior sentence was not precise, and hopefully this change more accurately reflects the data.Onel5969 TT me 12:30, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
@Onel5969: the latest change reads:
Generally speaking, the annual minimum temperature in Phoenix is in the mid-to-low 30s. It rarely drops below 32 °F (0 °C), having done so only sixteen times between 1995—2015.
I don't think the second sentence flows well because the first is talking about annual lows. (It was also inaccurate to say "below 32", the data above includes nights where the low was 32). I propose this:
Generally speaking, the annual minimum temperature in Phoenix is in the mid-to-low 30s. It rarely drops to 32 °F (0 °C) or below, having done so in only seven of the years between 1995—2015 on a total of sixteen different days.MB 02:44, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi MB - Much better. I struggled with that second sentence, but you nailed it. My only comment is you might drop the "different". Don't think it's necessary. Thanks. Onel5969 TT me 11:29, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Sky Harbor[edit]

Hi I reverted the page to my latest edition with a reference now, which is by the way, from the same page referenced in the reference just before mine-btw I had difficulty saying the latter sentence fast!. Also it's important to include that information since Aeromexico no longer flies to Phoenix, whereas Volaris does. Merry Christmas and God bless! Antonio el cangri Phoenix version!

Hi, and thanks for taking it to the talk page. I reverted this last time for two reasons, first, you included a raw link as a ref, which is not acceptable in a GA (good status) article, second, you reintroduced circular wikilinks (I think that was by mistake). If I have time, I will go back and format the reference. Merry Christmas to you as well. Onel5969 TT me 11:04, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Transportation/Air[edit]

On 13 August 2017 at 14:35 I made an edit to Phoenix Sky Harbor Intl Airport. I revised to 1,200 flights a day and 120,000 passengers daily and I cited the PHX Airport (Airport Facts) website as my source. This has been revised recently to match 2016 daily data but was reverted back because the editor stated my edit was unsourced. I helped them update this website with other updated information and my edit is correct. Just do the math with yearly passengers and aircraft movements and the edit was right.2601:581:8501:870E:304C:CD3D:3958:6A95 (talk) 14:05, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
