April is a beautiful spring month in New Mexico with brilliant sunshine and clear skies. The state records an average of 23 sunny days that rapidly melt any remaining snow on the ground. The rivers, lakes, and creeks are full of freshwater from the melted snow, rather than from the light rainfall. Snowfall is over except for a few areas in the high mountains. Agriculture activities begin with the start of the frost-free period. The average high temperatures are between a warm 61°F (16.1°C) to 79°F (26.1°C), while the average night temperatures drop to the mild 23°F (-5°C) to 48°F (8.9°C) zone. White Sands National monument is a great place to bask in the sun and sand and take pictures, with beautiful, warm weather between 40°F (4.4°C) to 79°F (26.1°C). April has negligible rain and low humidity and is mainly sunny in the south. Storms are few during the first half of the month.
