Winter storm drops April snow across northeast New Mexico
ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Much of the state braced for the winter storm that hit over the weekend.
Temperatures dropped sharply as the storm started to move into the state Friday night.
Snow fell across most of the storm’s path and dropped 10 inches of snow in Tijeras, 15 inches in Tererro, and just over 8 inches in portions of Santa Fe.
“I was greeting tourists all over saying Merry Christmas to then in the spring,” said Myles Calladitto.
“I love it. I’m all for it. I feel like time traveled back to Christmas time and it’s amazing. Yes, I have Christmas music on,” said Lucero Maldonado.
Several roads had to be closed due to the snow. HW 64 is still closed between Clayton and Raton due to the snow and ice. I-25 is covered and in ice and snow and caution should be used in the Watrous area near mile markers 364 to 402.
Eastbound I-40 was closed starting near Zuzax. Crews spent the day clearing the roads and most roads are open.
