ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Winter weather in New Mexico continues to curtail and delay public services and produce difficult driving conditions Friday.
    
Crews are plowing Interstate 40 between Clines Corner and Santa Rosa and Interstate 25 between Rowe and Raton.
    
Areas with delayed school openings include Santa Fe and Carlsbad, while schools in Albuquerque's eastern mountains were closed. State offices in Santa Fe also delayed opening.
    
The National Weather Service says bitter cold temperatures will continue to grip much of northern and central New Mexico, with freezing fog and flurries or light snow in some areas but limited impact overall.
    
Light freezing drizzle is forecast to expand across the eastern plains Friday night.
    
Forecasters say a storm system will move into the Four Corners region late Saturday and drop snow over the northern mountains.
