Travelers In Northern NM May Encounter Snow

Mar 7, 2014

The National Weather Service says residents and travelers in New Mexico can expect accumulating and blowing snow in parts of the state Friday and into the weekend.

Forecasters say several inches of snow may accumulate Friday night in the northern mountains, the northeastern highlands and the plains.

A hazardous weather outlook also says there could be reduced visibility due to blowing snow on Interstate 25 between the Glorieta Pass area and the Colorado line as well as on sections of Highways 64 and 87.

Forecasters say the snow will continue over portions of northern and northeastern New Mexico through Saturday morning before tapering off.

Another storm system could hit the area in the middle of next week.
