Winter Weather: Parts of New Mexico see snow Monday night

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP/KRQE) – Forecasters say an approaching storm system and low temperatures are expected to bring snow Monday night to the Albuquerque area.

The National Weather Service says western and central New Mexico is likely to see several inches of snow overnight.

The snow is expected to stop Wednesday and Thursday, but temperatures will remain low. Forecasters say the snow has another shot of returning to New Mexico on Friday.

The western and northern parts of the state are seeing most of the impact Tuesday morning. Conditions are clear over the metro, but the roads are still wet in areas and some icy spots.

Around I-40 west of Grants to the Arizona State Line, NM Roads reports conditions as difficult, with icy spots and some snow. Conditions are similar near Taos. Roads near Tierra Amarilla and State Road 244 to Cloudcroft also remain snow packed and icy.
