FARMINGTON — Farmington's workweek was welcomed in with winter weather.

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque issued a winter weather advisory for Farmington at 9:30 a.m. as snowfall and low visibility blanketed the city for the morning commute.

The weather service predicted 1-2 inches of snow in northwestern New Mexico and up to 4 inches of snowfall in the San Juan Mountains on Monday.

By 3:30 p.m. the storm had moved east of Farmington and the weather service pulled the advisory for the city, said Mark Fettig, a general forecaster for the weather service in Albuquerque.

Three-fourths of an inch of snow was reported northeast of Farmington on Monday. That was the only snow accumulation data that was available for the Farmington area, Fettig said.

Fettig said forecasters predicted cold and dry weather in Farmington's future. Temperatures are predicted to stay dry and warm to the mid-40s by this weekend.

Fettig said a winter weather advisory can be issued in areas below 7,500 feet above sea level when there is 1-4 inches of snow predicted and the snowfall is expected to affect driving conditions.

Farmington police Sgt. Dave Monfils said there were two Monday morning car crashes within Farmington city limits. None of the crashes resulted in a serious injury, he said.

There was a suspected drunken driver who collided with four vehicles during a police pursuit Monday afternoon, but those crashes were not directly linked to the weather.
