Are there any weather disasters or extreme weather in Santa Fe, NM? Let’s face it some places have more extreme weather than others making them more riskier places to live or relocate to in the future. Santa Fe has a remarkable low risk for extreme weather unless you consider our sunshine, blue skies and fresh air as extreme weather!

There is extremely low earthquake risk and Santa Fe is not considered to be a hurricane or tornado risk community. Here are some interesting facts:

  • the largest tornado within 50 miles of Santa Fe was in 1981 and classified as an F1 with no injuries or property damage,
  • the US Geological Service database rates Santa Fe as having a 29.310% chance of an earthquake within 50 kilometers of Santa Fe in the next 50 years,
  • with the average annual rainfall participation at 14.22 inches per year there is a low chance for flooding,
  • with the average high July temperature of 85.6 degrees and the average low January temperature of 15.5 degrees there is risk of extreme heat or cold is low,
  • like other communities in the Southwestern United States, Santa Fe is experiencing climate change and drought risk yet on a scale of weather hazards the overall extreme weather risk remains low.

Santa Fe is a very inviting area.  Many of us are trying to select a retirement home location.  Thanks, too, for sharing the beautiful photograph.
