Winter Storm Watch Posted

Be careful the next few days. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch effective from Friday into Saturday morning. Heavy mixed precipitation is possible, with total snow accumulations greater than 4 inches. Ice accumulations of around one tenth of an inch can also be expected throughout south central Mountains and Chaves County plains, as well as Quay, Curry, Roosevelt, De Baca, Eastern Lincoln, and Southwest Chaves Counties. The storm is expected to begin Friday morning and last through Saturday morning. Plan on slippery road conditions. A winter storm watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet, or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
