ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Out with New Mexico’s recent dryness and unseasonably warm temperatures and in with blustery, colder and wetter.

Forecasters say the change is due to a “potent back door cold front” blasting into the state Saturday night and Sunday morning and producing potentially damaging winds.

The weather service expects what it calls “a widespread wintry mix of precipitation” Sunday night through Monday night and says the Monday morning commute could be dicey in some areas.
