Temperatures Plummet as Cold Front Moves Through Santa Fe

Snow, freezing fog, and a bitter cold front moving across New Mexico made travel “hazardous” on February 4, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

Jennifer West shared this video on Twitter depicting a snowy scene at her office in Santa Fe, where the noontime temperature dropped from 46 F on Monday to 21 F on Tuesday, according to the NWS.

“I was thinking how nice my commute to work was yesterday, I’m guessing since most took off Monday after the Super Bowl,” she tweeted. “Not a fun drive into Santa Fe this morning.”

Santa Fe accumulated just a few inches of snow, but Taos County, north of Santa Fe, tallied eight inches early on February 4. Albuquerque and Santa Fe remained in a Winter Weather Advisory until the evening, local media said. Credit: Jennifer West via Storyful
