Los Alamos, New Mexico - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I really like this climate. Nice four season climate, but i think it could use a little bit more rain. Overall, an A for me.

Too dry and presumably sunny, but not too shabby.

I give it an A-. On the plus side: Gets decently warm in the summer, but not too hot. I like the diurnal range in the summer and the cool. Gets cold in the winter, but not too cold. Plenty of snow, or at least somewhat more snow than we usually get here. On the downside, too many rainy days in the summer.

Sorry but I have to give this a failing grade. Nights are way too cold year round and with an annual snowfall of 144cm, it's too much for me.

I give it a D-, I wanted to say "F" but there are climates much worse.

Every season is colder than where I currently live on top of it averaging more than twice the snowfall of my location, that's an automatic no thank you for me. Those record lows are out of this world and those record highs would be considered normal for my location.

D-. Rather cold, especially at night, and quite dry, too. Not bad for somewhere at the height of Mount Kosciuszko though.

B+. Very good, and I would give it an A if winter highs were below freezing.

I give this one a C, which is better than I thought it would fare. Both winters and summers are too hot, and quite a bit beyond the forgiveness threshold, but the conditions aren't that bad. The summers are quite a bit closer to ideal than the winters. The snowfall figure is decent, though the averages ensure that rapid and complete melting will be the typical pattern. Record highs and lows in summer are good enough, but winter records are too warm all around. The precipitation is a nice figure. I also assume that it is too sunny for me as well, if the other New Mexico weather stations are anywhere near Los Alamos's figure.

Places in Ohio have similar winter means to Los Alamos. If all of the humid subtropical areas of the world were closer to this place's "climate genetics" (as in more like Arizona and less like Mississippi), it would be a distinct improvement.

Some redeeming features. I give it a "D3/4". Loses out on cold nights, cool winters, and excessive dryness in humidity and rainfall.
