Episode Narrative Heavy snow developed mainly across west central and north central New Mexico with areas of freezing rain across the eastern plains as a closed upper level low moved in from the west and then slowed as it passed over the state. Amounts ranged from 6 to 18 inches across the western mountains, 5 to 10 across many northern lower elevation areas and up to 20 inches at northern ski resorts, and 4 to 9 inches near Albuquerque and in nearby Sandia and Manzano Mountains. East central counties saw freezing rain and ice coating reach 3/8 inch. Travel across the state was heavily impacted with long periods of closure on Interstate 40 both east and west of Albuquerque.
Event Narrative Heavy ice coatings of 1/4 to 3/8 inch.
