ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The National Weather Service says a very strong arctic cold front that pushed into New Mexico has brought the coldest temperatures of the winter.

The weather says the cold air will continue flowing into New Mexico on strong east winds, driving wind chills dangerously low.

The cold will remain into Thursday.

Record-setting cold temperatures, strong east winds and snow are making for dangerous traveling conditions.

The Albuquerque International Sunport says American and Southwest airlines have canceled two flights each to Chicago.

Airport officials say 20 flights were canceled Tuesday because of bad weather at their destination points. That represents about 15 percent of the day's flights.

Albuquerque police report receiving 23 calls about accidents with injuries and 100 calls for accidents without injuries between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The state Transportation Department says Interstate 25 was closed from the Socorro area to Las Cruces.

The department says Interstate 40 was closed Wednesday morning between Cubera and Laguna because of a crash.

Difficult driving is reported on I-40 in the Bluewater and Grants area and east of Albuquerque to the Texas state line.
