Warm Winter Solstice
Today we welcomed the first day of winter with partly cloudy skies. A warm breezy Sunday across The Borderland. We reached a high of 63 degrees,overnight lows are expected to drop into the upper 30's lower 40's in both El Paso and Las Cruces. High pressure will continue to dominate for your Monday forecast with westerly winds picking up into the evening. Monday we will be warming up into the mid 60's about 10 degrees above normal.
A strong cold front is expected to push in through the Borderland Monday night this will make for much cooler temps and a slight chance of rain in the mountains on Tuesday. Cold air will dominate into Tuesday as a cold front cools things back down into the upper 50's.
Christmas Eve and Christmas are looking slightly warmer with temps in the low to mid 60's. A second weak cold front is expected on Friday.
