As Tuesday is the last day of November and meteorological fall, the climatological rankings are almost ready to be computed. We are expected warmer than normal temperatures, so our rankings will only rise. Without the final day of November and fall, Albuquerque is currently ranking as the 5th warmest November on record and tied for the 3rd warmest fall season out of 130 years.
