Parts of New Mexico may see freezing temperatures and late-season snow as colder air arrives early this week.
In a news release Sunday evening, the National Weather Service warned that “a big change in the weather is coming as we move through the next 24-48 hours.”
Meteorologists said that the Continental Divide in western New Mexico may see minor travel impacts, but the heaviest snow was likely in the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains south to the Clines Corners and Vaughn area.
Expect colder temperatures Monday night and Tuesday night, “which looks to be the coldest night of the week and possibly of the remainder of the season,” according to the NWS. Temperatures in Albuquerque could drop to 29 degrees.
