Snow and ice makes driving difficult on many highways in eastern, northern New Mexico


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Snow and ice from a winter storm has produced difficult driving conditions on numerous highways across large areas of northern and eastern New Mexico.

Those routes include Interstate 25 between Rowe and Raton and Interstate 40 from Clines Corner to the Texas line.

The National Weather Service says snowfall should decrease in coverage and intensity across the northern mountains and eastern plains Thursday afternoon but be followed Thursday evening by a new storm.

That storm is expected to produce heavy snow across the northern and central mountains and adjacent lowlands, with significant snowfall accumulation spreading eastward along the I-40 corridor to the Texas line.

Snow is forecast to decrease by Friday afternoon but possibly continue in some highway elevations into early next week.
