ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque and Roswell have shattered records for November after logging high temperatures way above seasonal averages.

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque on Friday released data for the month that just ended, saying such temperature records are typically broken by a tenth or two rather than whole degrees as was the case this year.

The warmest November on record for Albuquerque resulted in an average temperature of 52.8, beating the 51 degrees marked more than a century ago in 1909.

For Roswell, November’s average was 55.4 degrees. The previous record was set in 1927 with an average high of 54.6 degrees.

Aside from the warm weather, the western half of New Mexico is dealing with varying degrees of drought according to the latest map . Albuquerque has gone nearly two months without measureable precipitation.
