Erica's Wednesday Morning Forecast

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – This morning we are seeing snow around Pagosa Springs and Silverton, Colorado, which may cause some slick spots on the 550 and 160. Snow will end throughout the morning, leading to drier and clearer skies today. In southeast New Mexico, we are dealing with dense fog around Hobbs, but it should start to dissipate by around 8 a.m. Temperatures are in the 30s, 40s, and 50s this morning, but with a cold front moving through this morning, we will not be warming up as much by the afternoon.
