Snow flurries in March for some residents near the metro

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Many metro area residents may have woken up Sunday to mixed rain and snow falling outside, as well as moderate gusts of wind.
A winter weather advisory has been issued for areas of central and western New Mexico – including parts of the Chuska, Sandia and Manzano mountains – until 6 a.m. Monday. Weather officials say snow accumulations of up to four inches are possible in some areas, as well as up to nine inches in the mountain ranges.
For those who have been missing the winter weather, of which there has been very little this year, it was a perfect opportunity to have some fun, especially in the East Mountains.
"My granddaughter and her little brother are out there," said Marc Beville, an East Mountains resident, referring to the wintry outdoors. "We've actually been able to play outside a lot more during the winter than we have been able to in the past."
"I love it," added Larry Ulibarri, another East Mountains resident. "We've been needing it for a while. It hasn't snowed much the last couple of years."
