Storm brings heavy snow to northern New Mexico

Heavy snow is falling in northern New Mexico's mountains as a major storm moves into the state after dumping snow in Arizona.

The state Transportation Department says driving is especially tough in the Taos area on US 64 and on New Mexico 434 where plow drivers are reporting more than 8 inches of snow on the roadway.

Crews are plowing roads and spreading cinders as needed.

The National Weather Service says worst effects of the fast-moving storm are being felt from Interstate 40 north to the Colorado border. The fast-moving storm will bring high winds as well. The storm should begin leaving the state by Wednesday evening leaving Thursday dry.

Senior weather service forecaster Tim Shy says extreme cold temperatures are expected Wednesday night as the storm moves out.
