...WINTER WEATHER TO RETURN TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY OVER
NORTHERN AND EASTERN NEW MEXICO...

The potential for widespread winter travel impacts is increasing
over northern and eastern NM Tuesday night and Wednesday. Light
snow will develop over the northern mountains and far northeast
NM Tuesday afternoon then spread southward across much of central
and eastern NM Tuesday night and Wednesday. The combination of
widespread light snow with much colder temperatures and gusty
winds will increase the threat of very slick travel conditions
along parts of I-25 and I-40, especially over eastern NM Tuesday
night. There is still some uncertainty with this storm system,
however light snowfall amounts of 1 to 3" are possible from the
central mountain chain eastward into eastern NM. Locally higher
amounts of 3 to 6" are possible in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Very cold air in the wake of this system will allow slick travel
conditions to persist over parts of the area through Wednesday
night.

Stay tuned to the latest forecasts on this developing winter storm
system. For the latest road conditions visit nmroads.com or dial
5-1-1.
