ALBUQUERQUE WEATHER

Time and time again, if you ask someone who has relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico, why they decided to move here, you'll hear the response, “The weather.” Many visitors cannot believe how many completely beautiful days Albuquerque enjoys year-round. We bask in 310 days of sunshine, combined with a mild, dry climate and four distinct seasons. Very low humidity means that even when temperatures rise, summer is always comfortable, and our sunny winters are comparatively mild. Our average annual rainfall is about 9 inches, and the average relative humidity is only 44 percent. 

Please be aware that low humidity and abundant sunshine mean visitors need to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Visitors should also use sunblock with a high SPF for skin protection. UV rays are stronger at higher altitudes; Albuquerque's elevation is over 5,000 feet.

We hope your experience in Albuquerque is nothing short of ideal. Odds are that you will enjoy clear, sunny days and perfect weather.
