It’s Fall in Albuquerque

In May the highest official temperature in Albuquerque was 87º.

In June the official high temperature in Albuquerque reached 90º or higher 27 out of 30 days. It got to 100º twice (actually 103º one of those two times). The average high was 93.3º.

In July the official high temperature in Albuquerque reached 90º or higher 29 out of 31 days. It got to 100º three times. The average high was 95.6º.

In August, so far, the official high temperature in Albuquerque has reached 90º or higher just six out of 25 days. 93º is the highest and 86.7º the average. Twice the high hasn’t even reached 80º.

At a mile above sea level the summer really is perfect. Warm but confined to 2-1/2 months!


Update September 5th: Hasn’t been 90° since August 15th.
