The area light rain/snow mix will stick around the El Paso area at least through midnight. The overnight low temperatures will be colder with an expected low of 28º in El Paso, 24º in Las Cruces.

The skies will start off partly cloudy and then become mostly sunny late Saturday with a high of 48º in El Paso.

You will need to take a heavy jacket and blankets to the Sun Bowl game at, it's going to be a chilly one with temperatures ranging from 38º to 46º from kick off through the fourth quarter.

By Sunday we should be clearing up and drying out allowing for temps to reach the 50's once again!

Monday is expected to be the warmest day of the week with a high of 58°. By Tuesday, another strong cold front will sweep through the area, which should allow for more moisture to spill in.

This could very well produce snow across the borderland! A white New Year's Eve!

There was a strong cold front moving into our area, which caused us to see some pretty decent snow amounts in our region. Some areas were cold enough to allow snow to make it to the ground....
