[ARCHIVED] Fall Begins Monday, Sept. 23

As many Las Cruces residents sleep Sunday night into Monday morning it will become fall in Las Cruces.

Fall officially begins in Las Cruces, and across North America, at 1:50 a.m. Monday, Sept. 23. It ends the Sunday before Christmas, on Dec. 22.

Already, many Las Crucens are beginning to feel the change in seasons. Temperatures are already becoming noticeably cooler, particularly in the mornings. Another hint that fall is arriving, or has arrived in Las Cruces, is the smell of red chile in the morning air. That subtle but distinct scent of red chile can’t be found anywhere else but southern New Mexico.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts temperatures could be generally cooler than usual this fall across the Desert Southwest, which includes Las Cruces. Precipitation is anticipated to be slightly  above normal in the eastern portion of the Desert Southwest and below normal  in the west. The Old Farmer’s Almanac considers Las Cruces, El Paso and Albuquerque to be in the eastern portion of the Desert Southwest, with the western portion of the region extending into far southeastern California and southern Nevada.
