A Pacific Low And A Cold Front Bring Big Weekend Weather Changes
Sunny skies and breezy range southwesterly winds allowed the Borderland to warm up way above average Thursday. The skies will become partly cloudy overnight with a steady to breezy range wind and a low of 41º. Clouds will push in Friday along with gusty winds and a 50% chance of scattered rain showers and a cooler high of 59º. Weather changes come quickly as a low pressure system with a cold front will track into and through our area Friday and Saturday. This system will produce scattered lowland rain showers and mountain snows. Colder air mixes in early Saturday.
A ridge of high pressure will clear out the skies and dry us out. Sunshine and high pressure will gradual warm temperatures are Monday through Christmas day. Christmas day will be partly cloudy with an El Paso high temperature in the low 60's.
