ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Parts of New Mexico will be in for another round of winter weather this weekend.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque say the system could bring moderate snow to the southwest and south-central mountains overnight Friday and into Saturday.

The central mountain chain and areas along the Continental Divide could see lighter snowfall, while cold air spreading south could result in accumulating snow across lower elevations of the northeast on Saturday.

Temperatures are expected to be anywhere from 5 to 15 degrees below normal.

Forecasters and state and federal water managers who met Thursday to discuss drought conditions say precipitation for much of the state so far this month ranges from half to normal. However, some areas in far eastern and western New Mexico have received little moisture.
