Climate change modeling indicates that Las Cruces can expect higher temperatures, more drought, periodic flash floods, and dust storms.

  • Two weeks per summer of temperatures >105°F by mid-century and 8 weeks by the end of the century
  • More than 50 days per year when warm temperatures and humidity in the monsoon season will make evaporative coolers ineffective.
