First Day of Spring Fun Quiz, NM Spring Weather Forecast

Spring arrives in Albuquerque tonight officially at 9:06p.m. tonight!

There are only two times of the year when the Earth's axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun, resulting in a "nearly" equal amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes. These events are referred to as Equinoxes. (Vernal Equinox - the first day of Spring). Around the equinox, we're gaining over two minutes of extra daylight each day, so it will take less than a month from now to gain an additional hour of sun. 

2024 Spring Forecast:

  • April: Forecast confidence is moderate to high for near to slightly above precipitation and near average temperatures for central and northern NM.
  • May: Forecast confidence is low to moderate for near average precipitation and near average temperatures. Once again, May has the lowest forecast confidence.
  • Wind: Forecast confidence is moderate to high for below average wind speeds in March and April and near average in May.
