An overnight cool front will bring in more humid air and increase our flooding potential
More sun throughout the day and an upper level ridge of high pressure to our west will heat the Borderland above average today. The skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with a high of 97º in El Paso. There is a 20% chance of a late day early nighttime storm.
A cool front pushes in from the east overnight adding more low level moisture and causing the air mass to become unstable. Add the fact that the frontal boundary will move back and forth, there will be areas of heavy rain Thursday through at least Saturday along with the strong possibility for flash flooding.
High temperatures will fall into the below average 80's Thursday through Saturday because of the cloudy skies and area rainfall.
