ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A winter weather advisory is scheduled for parts of northern New Mexico. The National Weather Service says wintry weather is expected along a wide stretch of the state's northern border starting Wednesday. Three inches to a half-foot of snow is expected in the San Juan and Jemez mountains, as well as the northern Sangre de Cristo Mountains above 9,500 feet. Chama and Taos are among towns expected to get snow. In the high terrain closest to the Colorado border, there could be more than 10 inches of snow.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — There are at least 114 Mexican gray wolves roaming the American Southwest. That's one more than was recorded during the previous survey, and U.S. wildlife managers say lower survival rates among pups are primarily to blame. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Wednesday released the findings of its annual population survey, which included tracking wolves in parts of Arizona and New Mexico over the winter and more recent monitoring flights. The latest figure includes 26 pups that survived through the end of last year.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico Legislature received a flurry of reports about possible sexual misconduct, harassment and discrimination during the recently concluded legislative session.

No probably cause was found to warrant a formal charge and few details were released.

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man has been reunited with cash he left at an ATM after a woman found it and turned it in to police. Roswell police say the man called authorities Monday to report he had left $300 on top of the machine. His call came in just as the woman had dropped by the station to turn in the money. She told officers there was no receipt or other information with the money to identify the owner but that she had noticed a man making a transaction while she waited her turn. She recognized the man and his vehicle when he arrived at the station.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The top two regents New Mexico State University are defending a recent vote to limit some administrative powers of the school's outgoing chancellor after critics called for their resignations. Democratic Senate President Mary Kay Papen last week drafted a letter calling out the regents. It was signed by more than 40 legislative colleagues.
