Canadian chill keeps the Borderland below normal cool through Saturday morning, warmer weekend on tap!
Last's night's cold Canadian air mass that pushed in has made made for a drier and chilly Thursday! The winds were thankfully not as strong as expected and will remain steady out of the east to northeast today with a high of 49º in El Paso.
We can expect clear skies and another cold overnight with a low of 27º. Mostly sunny skies with still a below normal cool high of 60º Friday afternoon
We can plan on mostly sunny skies as our region starts to gradually warm up this weekend.
A couple upper waves will swing through to produce some isolated rain late Saturday and a second wave swings by late Monday to produce a few more showers and storms mainly over our area mountains.
Westerly winds and high pressure really warm up next Tuesday and Wednesday into the mid to upper 70's!
