ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A winter storm system is dropping rain and snow on much of New Mexico, producing difficult driving conditions on some highways, including Interstate 25 in northern New Mexico.

The state Department of Transportation says I-25 between Rowe and Raton is icy and packed with snow. Crews are plowing.

Forecasters say a couple of inches of snow are expected Friday along the state's eastern half, with up to a foot in highway elevations in northern New Mexico.

Winds are forecast to gust up to 50 mph Friday night, first in the eastern plains and then in the Rio Grande Valley.

Forecasters say the weekend will bring more rain and snow for the plains. The winter weather is also expected to move into central and western New Mexico.
