The Farmers Almanac Predicts Winter 2020 In New Mexico Will Have Lower Temps And Above Average Amounts Of Snow

If you’ve lived in the Southwest for any period of time, you’re probably not too afraid of winter weather. We’ve heard horror stories from our friends in the North about extreme cold and blizzards that are seemingly unending. Winter in the Land of Enchantment might be worse than outsiders think (we do get snow, after all,) but this year is predicted to be less than ideal. Thanks to the long-form forecast, Farmer’s Almanac, we can take a look into the future and see what the new seasons might bring. Unfortunately, the Southwest takes the brunt of Mother Nature this year with colder temperatures and more snow throughout New Mexico than is average.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Don’t fear, it’s not winter quite yet! Before it gets too cold, make sure to get out and see all of the fall foliage. One of the best ways to do that is to take a fall foliage road trip throughout the Land of Enchantment.
