Cold front brings freezing rain, sleet and snow to northeastern New Mexico


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — A mass of cold air that moved through northeastern New Mexico on Thursday brought a mixture of freezing rain, sleet and snow.

The wintry weather began moving into the state Wednesday evening, is expected to peak Friday and likely to taper off on Saturday.

National Weather Service meteorologist Kerry Jones says the cold front brought mostly freezing rain by midday Thursday, though there were reports of snow near Clayton, Trinidad and Raton Pass.

The wintry precipitation is a result of a warm, moist air stream mixing with colder air.

It's expected to expand into eastern New Mexico.

Weather warnings have been issued for central and eastern portions of the state.
