Climate

New Mexico used to be known as 'The Sunshine State' because all areas of the State receive 70-80% of the national levels of sunshine each year. But with a State as large and varied as New Mexico, the climate differs considerably from one place to the next. In some areas temperatures above 38ยบ are not uncommon. In winter, snow falling in the lowlands frequently melts by midday, but ski areas maintain good bases from late November into mid-April. The best time to visit is during the Spring (April/May) and Autumn (September/October)
