What You Need to Wear for Albuquerque

Albuquerque is a high desert climate. It's best to keep the weather in mind when you're booking a trip to Albuquerque. As with any other destination, you'd want to maximize your enjoyment throughout your stay, and this wouldn't be possible if you packed the wrong clothes to go with your trip. You'd want to move freely and comfortably as much as possible without worrying about whether it's going to get too cold or too hot. Being prepared is the key.

But before we move on with your clothing must-haves and essentials, it's worth noting that Albuquerque is located ideally as a jumping-off-point for various day travels to different destinations, including mountain peaks, hot deserts, and more. Keep this in mind since you'll definitely be needing it with hiking-appropriate footwear and comfortable shoes if your itinerary calls for it. That said, here is a simple guide about the clothes you'll need for your Albuquerque trip.

Summer

The months of May to September comprise the summer season in Albuquerque. The weather will be hot, so you might want to pack thin and breathable clothes. Think summer dresses, short pants, or light skirts to style according to your plan for the day. It's also recommendable to wear sandals or comfy footwear during the summer season since the heat can absolutely get to you. You don't want to be wearing rubber shoes in such a hot temperature unless you're going on a hike. As an extra precaution, a sunscreen lotion may also come in handy if you want to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays.

Fall

The Autumn or Fall season in Albuquerque is usually dubbed "Indian Summer." This is because of the fact that summer still hovers somewhere around late September and early October, with temperatures about 70 degrees Fahrenheit on average. It may also rain now and then during this period. During this season, you may still want to stick with breathable footwear and opt for long or short sleeve shirts. You can also pack light dresses or style yourself in layers, preferably a rain jacket over a top, to prepare yourself for unpredictable rains.

Winter

One typical recommendation when packing clothes in Albuquerque is to always include layers. You'd need to keep this in mind during the winter season since you want that extra protection from the cold. Winters in this city can be snowy and are most often cold and short-lived. The temperature tends to range from 26 to 57 degrees Fahrenheit and is scarcely below 18 degrees Fahrenheit. You'd want to pack extra socks or mittens and gloves during this season. Make sure to throw in some lip balm as well to hydrate your lips now and then. Cozy coats and jackets are a must-have, alongside waterproof snow boots in case of snow.

Spring

Spring is one of the best seasons of the year because you can practically style yourself however you want. It's advisable to pack dresses, warm jeans or pants, or coats for layering purposes. Light jackets are also great, including pants and heavy skirts.

Weather and Climate

If you're planning to go to Albuquerque, it would be wise for you to learn about its average climate first. Doing so will help you know what kind of activities to do in the area, which places to visit, and of course, which appropriate clothes to pack.

What you need to remember is that the city of Albuquerque is at a high elevation of 5 000 ft. With this information, you can expect the air to be much thinner, which will prompt several days for your body to become familiar with it. Besides this, the destination is also a high desert climate. This means that summer temperatures during the day can go as high as 90 on average. Other times, the temperature even exceeds this, though the temperature eventually becomes bearable during the evening.

The winter season in Albuquerque usually experiences mild and sunny days, but the temperature still drops significantly after sunset, ranging from the numbers 40 and lower. This means that you can expect rather chilly winter evenings. And although Albuquerque is known for being a high desert environment, it still does snow during the winter season, although occasional for the most part.
