RED RIVER, N.M. (AP) - Crews are out plowing roads and spreading salt and cinder on highways in northern New Mexico as the latest storm to cross the state brings with it snow and cold temperatures.

The state Transportation Department reported Monday evening that driving conditions were difficult in the Red River and Black Lake areas. Snow was accumulating on U.S. 64 west of Interstate 25 and other state highways in the area.

Authorities were warning travelers to be careful and to slow down.

They say travel could also be affected at Glorieta Pass near Santa Fe, Raton Pass near the Colorado border and the Clines Corners area.

The National Weather Service says the late season snow was expected to continue through Tuesday. The heaviest snow was expected in the northern mountains and upper Rio Grande Valley.
