It is definitly cooler than in Arizona, but still pretty warm. We have currently temperatures between 25 and 30°C. There is always a chance of rain. On the street you will see people in their business dresses but also people who look like going to the beach. (In fact, München has a couple of beaches - most of them are nude.)

From that I deduce that there are nude women walking in München Strassen. Wowsah!!

Ah, spaarne! They are not nude in the streets. They are nude at the beaches along the river Isar. And they are nude in the park (Englischer Garten). You have to walk at least 100 meters from a public street to see a nude!

Crazy thought: check the weather forecast a day or two before you leave and dress for that general weather.

Even crazier thought: Ignore all weather forecasts, especially any long-term ones as they are no more than guesswork and totally useless anyway, and pack for all eventualities. Take some summer wear, and something to survive a rainy day at 15°C as well. One warm sweater and a rainproof jacket, and one pair of closed shoes that withstand the occasional puddle are must-haves in these parts of the world. Especially in case you intend to go up into the Alps. Pack clothes that can be combined and worn in layers if necessary. And don't worry too much about fashion: We are practical people.

That is true quokka, when I lived in Bavaria the weather was notoriously unreliable more than 2 days out.

Compared with Southern AZ (aside from the monsoon season), the weather in Upper Bavaria is much more humid. Even moderate 22C/75F can feel awkwardly humid and make you sweat.
Torrential, monsoon-style rainfalls are the exception, but thunderstorms w/ hail storms or just longer constant rain (24hrs+) are not the exception. Not every day, of course.

Temperature-wise anything from coolish mid 60s (during the day) to hot 90s would be considered as being "within the normal range" in summer.

If you look only at the temperature, you would miss the larger picture. As mentioned, while in Phoenix, you have something like 10-20% humidity where most of the heat comes from the direct exposure to the sun, it is something like 60-90% in Munich. If you wear clothes that do not breath or wicks moisture, you would end up wearing damp clothes. Also, I don't know about your accommodations, but hotels often don't come with the A/C because the locals don't think they are needed. However, the locals and you might feel differently under the same weather condition. If you have lived long time in very dry climate, you might find that the locals might be just fine wearing jackets and scarves while you might be sweating with just a t-shirt on.

You must be elegant to match the MEN.
Men, real Bavarian wear shorts, sandals and socks.
Perferably high socks unassorted.
They even have safety sandals in plants - with socks.

See the pics on this blog - I just found it, if you speak french, the comments are hilarious. I must read it in its entirety.
