The National Weather Service in Albuquerque issued a winter storm warning for the region and said that the storm will bring “periods of moderate to heavy snowfall to much of northern and central New Mexico through Wednesday.”
Snow will fall most heavily across the northern mountains and eastern slopes, where 12 to 18 inches are expected. Visibility will be strongly reduced as winds up to 30 mph follow the cold front, and travel impacts will be likely.
Snow has already started in Taos Ski Valley, where they are expected to receive between six and 10 inches. The town should see about one to three inches of snow.
The storm is expected to begin this evening, with the heaviest periods of snow from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
