ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Drivers across much of New Mexico are facing tough road conditions as a wintry storm that led to the brief closure of a stretch Interstate 40 leaves the state.

The state Transportation Department closed a stretch of I-40 about 70 miles east of Albuquerque in the Cline's Corner area early Sunday and reopened it at about 5 a.m. Mountain roads across are icy and crews are spreading cinders and plowing snow where needed.

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque says a storm that blew into the state Saturday had largely moved out but a weaker disturbance could continue bringing rain and snow to much of the state on Sunday.
