The 2020 monsoon season was a total bust for Albuquerque and much of the southwest U.S. The dew point temperature is one of many metrics used to monitor moisture surges of the southwest monsoon. Albuquerque saw the 3rd driest seasonal average dew point on record and the least number of days with an average dew point of 50° (June 1 - September 30). Dew point records are referenced back to 1947.
