Snow blankets Los Alamos

-A A +A

The precipitation is expected to taper off tonight but temperatures will take a plunge

By John Severance

It appears that the Los Alamos area was blanketed with at least six inches of snow by Thursday morning with more being forecasted to fall throughout the day.
Los Alamos County Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman said there was about 4 inches that fell overnight and another 3 or 4 inches was added to it and he is expecting another 4 to 6 inches.
Zimmerman said the county crews have been on the roads since the start of the storm, plowing, clearing and salting roads.
“We plow down to the county line on 502 and the state comes up the hill,” he said. “The state also takes care of NM 4.”

Acting County Administrator Randy Autio said that all non-essential departments are closing, including the aquatic center and the libraries. Trash pickup will continue as long as the weather permits.
Winds also could become a factor today with gusts expected up to 40 mph.
The biggest change in the weather, though, will be the temperature.  Canadian Arctic air behind the storm front will hit the Los Alamos area tonight and temperatures are expected to plunge into the low single digits.
