A winter storm warning remained in effect Sunday morning with blowing snow, single-digit temperatures and icy roads hampering travel.

The National Weather Service reported the temperature at 6 a.m. Sunday in Clovis was 6 degrees with blowing snow, fog and mist. NWS reported 20-mph winds had produced a wind-chill factor of 14 degrees below zero. Snowfall totals were not immediately available but 1-3 inches had been forecast overnight and cars and streets were covered in snow before midnight Saturday. Road conditions were reported as "fair" in Curry and Roosevelt counties, "severe" west of Clovis-Portales and "difficult" to the north. Road conditions are updated at nmroads.com .

The Eastern New Mexico News received Sunday newspapers from its print shop in Santa Fe about five hours later than normal because of the wintry weather and readers can expect similar delays in delivery. Stories on the newspaper's website can be accessed at no charge until the weather clears.

Print subscribers who don't receive a paper Sunday may call the newspaper office on Monday morning for delivery: 575-763-3431.

Frigid temperatures were expected to remain throughout the day Sunday with an additional 1 to 3 inches of snow expected to fall, mostly before 2 p.m.

Sunday night's low temperature was forecast at 9 below zero with a wind-chill of 24 below zero. Monday morning could see wind-chills near 20 degrees below zero for the first time since 2011, according to NWS.

Monday should see a high near 21.
