Albuquerque Area Climate & Geography

Sunshine dominates in Albuquerque's climate, up to 300 days a year. Any days that don't have sunshine usually only have high wispy clouds. Although Albuquerque does have four distinct seasons, the main difference between them is very light, loose clothing during the hot summers and a slightly heavier sweater or maybe a coat on winter evenings. In the Valley, winter temperatures range between highs close to 50 degrees and lows in the mid 20s. Summer daytime temperatures regularly go over 90 degrees, while evenings drop to the mid 50s. The higher the elevation, the cooler the climate.
