ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A large system is moving across New Mexico and Colorado Friday bringing with it wind, rain, and snow.
Winter storm warnings are posted for a large part of New Mexico with snow already falling and accumulating in many areas.
According to the National Weather Service, a strong cold front will likely reach the Rio Grande Valley and I-25 corridor from Santa Fe to Socorro in the early evening hours.
The Weather Service is warning residents to be prepared for rapidly changing conditions.
The snow will diminish in the west late Friday night in central areas but last through Saturday morning in the northeast. Windy conditions will follow the snow.
Albuquerque's Department of Municipal Development says they are ready for whatever comes. Officials say their team members will be working 12-hour shifts until the roads are cleared.
Our street maintenance team is ready to keep our roads clean as the snow moves in this evening. Our team will be ready to clear the roads once the weather hits. They will work 12 hour shifts until the roads are clear. @cabq @MayorKeller— ABQDMD (@abqdmd) February 22, 2019
