chaco canyon area weather
Chaco Canyon is remote enough so that there are no weather reports available for the canyon itself. There are reports available nearby cities, however, and these should give you a good idea on what to expect in Chaco Canyon. Remember that Chaco is high desert country, and that means that the weather can fluctuate wildly. Temperature changes of 60°F in a single day have occurred.
You can get road conditions by calling the park at (505) 786-7014 (ext. 1, then 4 at the time of this writing.)
