weather in USA in January

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on what the weather in the southern states and Mexico would be like in January? Looks like I'm going to have the month off and kind of fancy jumping on the bike for a mini trip for that time.

Thanks in advance as always

Nicest part of Mexico, IMO.

If you ride in "Southern" California, Arizona, New Mexico you should be fine but the "Northern" half of those states have winters, cold and snow. The north rim of the Grand Canyon is closed in the winter.
Much of that area is high altitude over 6,000' (1,800m).

Why not move there? It is actually something I've given some thought to over the last year since I worked there for a bit.
