Chaco Weather - c4visualimagery

Weather is a major consideration at Chaco. While accessible year around, thunderstorms and flooding in the summer and freezing temperatures in the winter can change a visit dramatically. Among the considerations is the very real possibility of roads becoming impassable during heavy rains. The Park Service has a good overview. Reliable forecasts can be found through the National Weather Service. Checking the weather well in advance of a visit is imperative.

Below is a chart showing average temperatures. Keep in mind that these are averages. A site with extreme temperature records as well can be found here.
