Weather in November
is the end of the autumn season in New Mexico
with temperatures in the average range of 25°F (-3.9°C) to 65°F (18.3°C) in the state. Places like Hobbs, Roswell, and Ruidoso in the north average between 28°F (-2.2°C) to 66°F (18.9°C), while Raton, Taos, and Clayton in the north are between 22°F (-5.6°C) to 57°F (13.9°C).
Rainfall is scanty and seldom exceeds 1" (25mm) to 1.5" (38mm) in most of the regions. Sunshine is bright and lasts for a daily 6 to 7.5 hours. The first sprinkling of snow occurs in the highlands, while mountain slopes receive moderate snowfall.
The peak of the fall foliage is over, and trees show bare limbs. Stormy weather is rare, which makes it an excellent time to visit the warm south. Night temperatures dip significantly in the north and at high altitudes. Rocky Mountain upper ranges experience an alpine climate. Ski enthusiasts have to wait for the beginning of the ski season as the snow depth is moderate at best. November sees fewer crowds and is perfect for budget travelers with fair weather and cheap accommodations.
