There is the old saying about the weather in Arizona - something to the effect that if the weather doesn't quite suit your taste, give it five minutes and it will change.  February is one of the more fickle months when it comes to the weather in red rock country, and while it may take a bit longer than five minutes for the forecast to shift, the variation in conditions can be dramatic.
