ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Much of northern and eastern New Mexico will be under a winter storm watch from Thursday afternoon through late Friday night due to wintry precipitation expected to include snow and ice that forecasters say could hinder travel.

The National Weather Service says snow accumulations are possible in the northern mountains, the northeastern highlands and the far northeastern plaints.

According to the forecasters, a cold air mass will plunge southward over eastern New Mexico Thursday night and mix with rich sub-tropical moisture moving northward to produce freezing rain, sleet and snow.

The weather service says there may be accumulations of ice and snow on the eastern plains, including on Interstate 40 from the Texas line to Tijeras and on Interstate 25 from the Glorieta Pass area to Raton Pass.
