ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A cold front will move through New Mexico, bringing us some precipitation and cooler temperatures as we start the weekend.

Right away, we’re seeing some light snow showers in the mountains.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 11 p.m. Friday. Places in the Jemez Mountains, the Tusas and the Sangre de Cristos could see 3-5 inches of snow and 5-9 inches above 8,000 feet. That could create slick roads.

The advisory is also in effect for Trinidad and near Raton from 5-11 p.m. Friday for 2-5 inches of snow and difficult travel.

Socorro saw some rain Friday morning. That will become more widespread later on in the day with that cold front.
