ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Widespread rain and snow showers are expected in large areas of New Mexico this week.

The National Weather System says a storm system will move across the Four Corners region Monday afternoon and Tuesday, producing rain and snow before tapering off Tuesday afternoon.

Much of southwestern New Mexico will get snow, with snow levels dropping from around 7,500 feet on Monday to 4,500 feet by Tuesday morning.

Snowfall amounts in that region are expected to total 3 to 6 inches below 7,000 feet and 4 to 7 inches above 7,000 feet.

Forecasters say there’ll also be moderate to locally heavy snowfall in northern, central and eastern New Mexico, with a mix of rain and snow in the Rio Grande Valley but little snow accumulation along the river.
