ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A blizzard warning was issued for the Albuquerque metro area Sunday morning as a storm brought snow, wind and arctic air across New Mexico.

Authorities said roads were snowy and icy across northern, central and eastern New Mexico.

The National Weather Service said snow was forecast to continue falling in the southern half of the state through the afternoon while it tapers off across the northern half of New Mexico.

State Department of Transportation officials said the storm may bring whiteout conditions along with bitter cold temperatures.

The storm is expected to continue for southern New Mexico into Monday morning and result in below-freezing temperatures in some locations.

Another storm system is expected to bring rain and snow chances across the state Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Weather Service meteorologists.
