 The legislative session ends with a fuss, there are several key points – The legislative session in New Mexico in 2022 is over.

 Cold, clear start to our Friday – The state is waking up with clear skies and very low temperatures across the country. We start with temperatures in the mid-20s in central New Mexico and single digits in the northern mountains.

That means we’ll be back in the 50s in the Albuquerque metro area and in the 60s east of the mountains.
