is lower at this time.

An area of heavy snow over eastern NM tonight will continue into
Wednesday across northeast NM through late in the day. Heavy snowfall
rates may continue in the area from near Tucumcari north to Clayton
and Capulin. Freezing fog and areas of blowing snow may reduce the
visibility below one quarter mile at times. Very cold temperatures
Wednesday night may lead to treacherous travel conditions with areas
of black ice.
