Know the Albuquerque Weather
October 31, 2017

Living in a place with nice weather is an excellent way to enjoy year-round entertainment, where you never have to put away the golf clubs in the winter, have access to outdoor recreation all year, and never have to worry about 100 degree temperatures in the summer.

Albuquerque is definitely a city where the seasons change beautifully but where the extremes aren’t so harsh that it’s difficult to enjoy time outside in the summer and winter. Albuquerque has a strong reputation for outdoor recreation enthusiasts, and it’s also an excellent city for walking and bicycling.

Here are a few details about the city’s weather and environment and how those features may influence your decision to move to the city.

The Weather in Our Area

Moving to a warmer and more forgiving climate is an action many people take when they’re about to retire, but the weather can also influence the decision to move to a city for a new job or another opportunity. For example, if you’ve been offered a new job in any city, you’d probably want to factor in the weather when deciding whether to accept.

According to Albuquerque’s official website, the average temperature in the area ranges from highs of 50 in the winter to 90 in the summer. Lows throughout the year reach 25 in the winter and hover around 62 in the summer.  When compared to other locations in nearby states, the weather in Albuquerque is somewhat milder than Phoenix, Salt Lake City, and Denver, where the extremes are much wider.

The average high in the summer is 90, but the average high in Dallas is 95 and the average summer high in Phoenix is 103. For winter lows, the average low in Albuquerque is 25, but the average low in Denver is just 16. If you want to live in a city with real seasons, but you don’t want to live in a place where the weather feels frigid in the winter and boiling in the summer, Albuquerque is a comfortable choice.

Air Quality and Environment in Albuquerque

The air quality in Albuquerque changes with the seasons as it does in many locations across the United States. During various times of the year, residents can expect different allergens to make an appearance, as well as different levels of ozone in the atmosphere and carbon monoxide emissions. As of October 2017, the carbon monoxide levels were below the regional average, according to the City of Albuquerque’s official website.

Ozone levels in Albuquerque at the same time were also below the regional average, and the air quality was rated as “good.” Other atmospheric contaminants like nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide were also below the regional average at the time. The only two items that slightly exceeded regional averages were the Particulate Matter (PM) levels.
