NM road crews mopping up after blizzard

ALBUQUERQUE — A day after blizzard conditions stranded motorists overnight and caused accidents that killed at least four people in New Mexico, highway crews Tuesday were mopping up and getting pre-holiday traffic back on the roads before another system moves into the state Thursday.

Forecasters said the next storm isn’t likely to be as severe as the system that caused rare blizzard-like conditions Monday. But they said it could bring enough snow to once again severely impact Christmas travelers on the Interstate 25 and Interstate 40 corridors Thursday and into Friday.
