ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Residents throughout New Mexico are being warned to expect the days following Christmas to be especially white and blustery.

The National Weather Service is predicting a wallop of a storm system this weekend that could close down roads during a time of heavy travel. The weather service has issued a winter storm watch for portions of central and western New Mexico and a rare blizzard watch for much of the Eastern Plains due to strong winds that are expected to develop.

Various cities have anywhere from a 23 to 84 percent chance of seeing precipitation Saturday.

In Las Cruces, residents could see up to 7 inches of snow by Saturday night.

Public Service Co. of New Mexico, the state’s largest utility, is anticipating power outages and advising customers to prepare emergency kits.
