The climate of Albuquerque (New Mexico - United States of America)
Albuquerque is the largest city in the state of New Mexico and is located centrally in this state. The city is located in Bernalillo County near the Chihuahua desert and on the banks of the Rio Grande River. The famous route 66 used to run through Albuquerque. Nowadays it bypasses the city. However, the old route is still an important tourist attraction. The city was founded as a trading post with the city of Santa Fe by the Spanish at the beginning of the 18th century. The Kirtland Air Force Base can be found in the city. This is also the cityís biggest employer.
Albuquerque has a cold steppe climate with low annual precipitation figures. During the summer temperatures may rise to tropical values with many hours of sunshine. Winters are cool to cold. Longer periods with subzero temperatures (during the night) are not uncommon.
