ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The New Mexico Department of Transportation was preparing for winter weather in northern New Mexico Tuesday night.


Trucks and snow plows were ready to hit the streets.

In Raton, snow is expected through Wednesday afternoon.

Raton Pass may see up to 10 inches of snow by the time the fast-moving system leaves New Mexico.

A representative with the Department of Transportation said their goal is to keep drivers safe.

"Once the snow starts flying, they have all their salt and cinders — their snow plows ready to go. They'll be on the road back and forth, back and forth and they won't stop until the roads are clear. They'll be changing every 12 hours. They'll be rotating," said NMDOT spokesperson Yvonne Aragon.
