My husband and I are considering moving to Alamogordo or Las Cruces soon but I don't like humid, sticky summer. What is the range of temperature during the summer months?

This kind of information is found on the City Data Forum pages for each city.

New Mexico Cities Here: //www.city-data.com/city/New-Mexico.html

Both of the cities you ask about are located in the Chihuahuan Desert - meaning the climate is typical of arid desert climates world-wide. Hot in summer, but low humidity most of the time.

IMO, Alamogordo is hot and humid in the summertime. Have you considered somewhere like High Rolls or Cloudcroft? Cooler in the summers but just up the road from Alamogordo.

Alamogordo Humidity:


Observe the "US average" for morning and afternoon vs Alamogordo's averages.
I have seen the humidity in the single digits (below 10%) on many days in recent years during the May/June period, and I live at the 7,000 ft elevation in the Lincoln Nat. Forest.

Alamo is very similar to El Paso, hot summers with low humidity except during the "monsoon" rains in Aug - Sept. Even then, the humidity usually dissipates quickly.

I remember even if Alamo was blazing hot during the day the evenings were very pleasant. But that was 40 years ago. Maybe it's hotter today with all this global warming.
