Albuquerque Weather

Just About Perfect

Albuquerque weather? Just about perfect: 310 days of sunshine, a mild, dry climate and four distinctly beautiful seasons.
  • Very low humidity means that even when temperatures rise, summer is comfortable, and our sunny winters are comparatively mild.
  • In the summer, sleep with the windows open for our cool evenings.
  • Pack a jacket in the winter, but by noon most days you won’t need it.
  • Our average annual rainfall is about 9 inches, and the average relative humidity is only 44 percent.
  • You can bring a raincoat for monsoon season’s late afternoon storms (July and August), but Albuquerqueans usually just wait them out. 
High altitude, low humidity and lots of sunshine mean visitors need to drink lots of water and use sunblock for protection.
