    It depends. Generally it is clear and sunny, with temps in the 40s or 50s during the day. Last year it was really nice around that time. But this year may be different as they are predicting more snow and cooler weather. I would say bring a nice warm coat, sunglasses, and you should be fine. As a rule of thumb, Santa Fe is usually about 5-10 degrees cooler than Albuquerque, and Roswell may be 5-10 degrees warmer than Albuquerque.

    Depends on where your talking about.If your taking Santa Fe or Taos, it's hot in the summer around the high 80s to low 90s.The winters, you will see snow, temps around the 30s and 40s.Autumn is the rainy season and prone to flash floods.Down south, like Carlsbad, it's pretty much a desert climate.This website might help, too.

    Perfect. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Bring a jacket, though. The second the sun drops below the horizon, the temp does, too.
