ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - As much as a foot of snow fell in some parts of New Mexico following a spring storm that shut down highways and state museums.

The National Weather Service reports that 8 to 12 inches of snow fell Saturday in Albuquerque’s East Mountain areas.

Los Alamos and Santa Fe to the north saw 6 to 8 inches.

There were also great amounts of snow in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains near the Colorado border.

The weekend storm shut down roads, including Interstate 25 and Highway 64 near Raton.

Four state-run museums in Santa Fe also closed due to the severe weather.
