Weather in Sierra County
Sierra County is located in the high desert of southern New Mexico. Our consistently sunny weather attracts visitors from across the country and around the world. We boast sunshine 350 days a year with highs that average 95 degrees in summer to 55 degrees in December, the coolest month. The low in December reaches an average of 28 degrees, but because of our dry desert climate, it doesn't feel as cold as more humid locations.
Due to our monsoonal weather pattern, we receive the most rain in July and August, but even then it's extremely rare to experience a full day of rain. Usually we'll experience a dramatic and refreshing storm, then go back to clear skies.
Due to our dry weather, you'll get advice from locals to drink lots of water. It's a good idea, even when you're enjoying one of our many waterfronts!
We think you'll enjoy our weather any time of the year, but fall is especially beautiful.
