Weather Information

The National Weather Service has declared a winter storm warning for the Albuquerque Metro Area and portions of north and central New Mexico.

Visit National Weather Service for the latest weather information.

Road Conditions

The City of Albuquerque urges you to stay home and avoid the roads. Icy road conditions continue throughout the entire Albuquerque metro and surrounding areas.

Residents who must drive should use extreme caution. Drive slowly, especially when making turns, and go easy on the gas when taking off from a fixed position. Remember that four-wheel-drive vehicles are not safer when driving faster. Slower speeds make it easier to stop with light pressure to the brakes.

How does the City prioritize the snow removal effort during a storm?

Road crews are currently plowing where there is accumulation and using ice melt on icy roads. Main arterial roads are the priority to be cleared at this time with a focus on intersections and bridges. Residential roads are unable to be plowed at this time.

During a snow storm Street Maintenance crews are mobilized. The City's first priority is to plow and de-ice all major arterial streets leading to emergency entrances and exits such as hospitals, police and fire stations. Provided all arterial streets are plowed and de-iced, efforts are then focused on feeder streets.

Bus Schedules & Conditions

Buses are running on a regular weekday schedule. Route #790 westbound is detouring down 5th Street due to construction on Rio Grande at the I-40 on ramp. Route #157 is detouring due to the road closure on Louisiana at Gibson.

Solid Waste

Residential trash and recycling collection is cancelled today. Tuesday customers will be get service on Wednesday.


The Westside shelter is staying open todayday and to assist the homeless at the shelter during this cold snap.
