EL PASO, Texas -- A Winter Weather Advisory issued by the National Weather Service remained in effect for Las Cruces and the El Paso metro areas until 5 a.m. Wednesday.

But ABC-7 chief meteorologist 'Doppler' Dave Speelman said our winter storm was already exiting after bringing rain, sleet and then snow across the area on Tuesday evening.

He said east and northeast El Paso picked up anywhere from a half-inch to nearly 2 inches of snow. Warm ground temperatures melted the snow as it hit roadways, but it did accumulate on grassy areas.

Numerous school districts delayed the start of classes Wednesday morning due to the wintry weather conditions. Click here for the list.

The NWS had advised up to three inches of snow was possible for areas north of Las Cruces including Truth or Consequences, Hatch and Deming. The weather service also said troublesome driving conditions could exist across sections of Interstates 10 and 25 in southern New Mexico.
