A winter storm advisory was issued for eastern New Mexico including the city of Roswell which got its first notable snowfall of the season.

The remnants of a slow-moving atmospheric river storm that pummeled California last week delivered the first significant snowfall across the Land of Enchantment this season with the National Weather Service warning of New Mexico snow pack and icy roads as the system headed toward the Texas Panhandle and central Oklahoma.
