More winter weather starting Monday night

Expected snowfall across the state for the incoming storm.

More winter weather is on the way, with the latest series of storm systems having started moving through Northern New Mexico on Monday (Feb. 15). The snowy weather is expected to keep up through Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service in Albuquerque issued a winter storm warning for the northern central region of the state, calling for two to six inches snow fall below 7,500 feet and six to 12 inches above 7,500 feet.

The storm will move from the northwestern part of the state Monday night into the central and eastern regions through Tuesday morning and into Tuesday night. While temperatures will rise, they will still be well below seasonal averages with Wednesday temperatures 15 to 30 degrees below normal. Wind chills are expected to be in the single digits Tuesday night.

The winter storm warning said roads may become icy and hazardous driving conditions may exist. There is also the possibility for freezing fog, making visibility low and travel very dangerous.
