ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The weekend storm delivered healthy rainfall totals across much of New Mexico and dumped snow on high-altitude areas.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2k0Kuqg) that Albuquerque International Sunport received 0.66 inch of rain Sunday, while Roswell recorded 0.33 inch of rain.

The heaviest snowfall was recorded at the 10,000-foot Magdalena Ridge Observatory west of Socorro, which racked up at least 18 inches.

Several ski areas picked up a foot or more of snow.

At lower altitudes, snow isn’t likely to stick very long with warmer, drier weather expected to push into the state this week.

Highs in the upper 40s and low 50s are expected in Albuquerque by Wednesday and Thursday, before another storm system Thursday night brings a chance for more rain and snow later in the week.
