The National Weather Service is predicting lows tonight in the Albuquerque area of 10-14 degrees Fahrenheit.

Here are some steps to avoid frozen pipes during cold snaps like this:

  • Drip a faucet overnight and open cabinet doors around plumbing (especially plumbing that’s adjacent to outside walls)
  • Shut down and drain sprinkler systems
  • Make sure exposed pipes are insulated against the cold
  • Don’t turn the heat all the way down when you’re going to be away from home.
