Difficult driving conditions reported on NM roads

NM Roads

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – Difficult driving conditions are reported on numerous highways in northern and eastern New Mexico as a winter storm moves across large sections of the state.

Highways with difficult conditions reported Monday morning included Interstate 40 between Clines Corner and Glenrio and stretches of Interstate 25 between Rowe and Raton and north of Truth or Consequences.

Meanwhile, eastbound I-40 is closed at Tucumcari in northeastern New Mexico because of a weather-related accident in western Texas.

In southeastern New Mexico, Carlsbad Cavern National Park is closed Monday because of what officials described as hazardous road conditions.

The National Weather Service said the snow will decrease in the afternoon but continue into the evening in northwest New Mexico. The heaviest snowfall is expected across the northern mountains.
