The climate of Farmington (New Mexico - United States of America)
Farmington is a medium sized city located in the most northwestern part of New Mexico in the vicinity of the borders with the states of Arizona, Utah and Colorado. The city is located in the vicinity of the Four Corners region of four states. Farmington is located in San Juan County at the junction of the San Juan River, the Animas River and the La Plata River. Several Indian reserves can be found in the vicinity of the city. Mesa Verde National Park is a Unesco preservation site and can be found just over the border with Colorado. Farmington has a cold steppe climate with extremely low annual precipitation figures.
The climate of Farmington has many characteristics of a cold desert climate. However, precipitation figures are just too high to be classified as such. Winters are cool to cold. During the winter longer periods with subzero temperatures (during the night) are not uncommon. Summers are very warm. Temperatures may even rise above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit).
