Rio Rancho

Rio Rancho is in an arid climate due to its location in the rain shadow of the Sandia Mountains to the east and the Continental Divide to the west. Rio Rancho receives 8.90 inches of precipitation annually on average, although the western portion of the city receives slightly more rain and snowfall due to its higher elevation than the more densely-developed eastern portion of Rio Rancho.
