Winter weather continues to produce difficult driving conditions on New Mexico highways and delays affecting public services.

Crews are plowing Interstate 40 between Clines Corner and Santa Rosa and Interstate 25 between Rowe and Raton.

Delayed openings Friday include state offices in Santa Fe. Schools with delays include Santa Fe Community College and Albuquerque's east mountain schools.

The National Weather Service says bitter cold temperatures will continue to grip much of northern and central New Mexico, with freezing fog and flurries or light snow in some areas but limited impact overall.

Light freezing drizzle is forecast to expand across the eastern plains Friday night with occasional snow or sleet.

Forecasters say a storm system will move into the Four Corners region late Saturday and drop snow over the northern mountains.
