ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Spring officially began over a month ago but the National Weather Service says much of New Mexico can expect another strong dose of winter weather this weekend.

A special statement issued Wednesday by the Albuquerque’s forecast office says a “significant late season winter storm” will hit northern and central New Mexico late Friday through early Sunday.

Forecasts say impacts of the system will include rain turning to snow Friday night and Saturday morning even in lower elevations, with significant snow accumulation expected in the northern mountains and across northeastern New Mexico.

Accumulating snow is expected along Interstate 25 in northern New Mexico and possibly along Interstate 40 in eastern New Mexico.

To cap it off, a late-season freeze is forecast Saturday night and Sunday morning at some lower-elevation locations.
