New Mexico WeatherClimate:
Across the state of New Mexico, climate varies considerably due to its size and topography, however one consistent fact can be stated, as it enjoys total sunshine more than 70% of the time.
Temperatures in the low 90's are common summer occurrences, but in the upper-reaches of the mountains, cities like Santa Fe are cooler throughout the year.
In winter, the mountains in north-central New Mexico receive as much as 300 inches of snowfall, while the arid, lower Rio Grande Valley sees less than two inches. July through August thunderstorms account for most of the state's rainfall.
