A strong low pressure system is expected to bring another round of accumulating snow to much of New Mexico through Saturday morning.
The National Weather Service (NWS) predicts this low pressure system will continue to inch east toward New Mexico, bringing wintry precipitation to the southern and eastern tiers of the state as well as many central parts.
Significant snowfall accumulations of a few to several inches will impact many parts of New Mexico. Snow accumulations will begin tallying up in the late morning and into the afternoon for many central areas today. By tonight, the focus for snow will shift into eastern New Mexico.
Treacherous travel can be expected. Some sleet and freezing drizzle may fall before the snow in some east central to southeastern parts of New Mexico, exacerbating the treacherous travel conditions.
