ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A storm system is moving eastward but a blizzard warning remains in effect for much of far northeastern New Mexico while other parts of the state cope with conditions that closed schools in some areas.

The New Mexico Department reports driving conditions are only fair in some areas. The department urges motorists to use caution and to watch for spots that are wet and icy.

Santa Fe’s school district closed schools Tuesday, as did the Albuquerque district for its East Mountains schools.

The National Weather Service says the blizzard warning for far northeastern New Mexico will remain in effect until late Tuesday afternoon, with 6 to 11 inches of additional snow expected Tuesday near the Colorado-New Mexico line and lesser amounts farther south.
