ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A wave of snow that blanketed New Mexico is expected to taper off Sunday afternoon.

David Craft, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Albuquerque, said the storm that produced icy rain and fog for much of Saturday turned into snow that fell over nearly every part of the state.

The state's northern and western mountains received the highest levels of snow fall. The latest snowfall figures were unavailable.

About a dozen road closures were reported across the southern part of the state, while officials say driving conditions were difficult across many areas of northern New Mexico. Crews with the state Department of Transportation were busy running snowplows up and down the roadways and spreading cinder to remove snow and ice.

Snow is forecast for Sunday morning, with an additional 1 to 2 inches expected in northern and central New Mexico and three to six inches forecast across the mountainous areas.

The snowfall is expected to taper off through most of the state later Sunday, and lingering rain and snow showers are expected Monday, when temperatures are expected to be warmer and snow accumulation is expected to be less.
