A Cold front blows in late Thursday and helps produce numerous shower and mountain snow!
Cloudy and already a few light rain drops have fallen around El Paso. A strong cold front blows in from the northeast tonight. We can expect breezy to windy, numerous showers push in tonight through early Sunday ahead of and with a Pacific system moving out of the Mexican Baja.
There is a Winter Storm Warning for the Gila Wilderness Mountains and the southern Sacramento mountains from midnight tonight through midnight Saturday. Some high mountain location could see many inches to over a foot of snow!
This cold front will move in tonight which means it'll be pretty windy in the evening. A storm system is pushing in plenty of moisture which will provide for good rain chances not only tonight but Friday, Saturday, with a slight chance of rain Sunday.
This rain could in turn change to a rain mix because of the chilly weather on Friday into Saturday. Sunday will still be very chilly with a chance of morning rain/snow mix.
Temperatures will stay pretty chilly starting tomorrow, and they will slowly warm up Saturday, but a second cold front hits Saturday which will cool us down on Sunday to the 50° mark edging closer to the 40's.
Drier, warmer air from the west flows in starting late Sunday and continues into next week. This will make for more mild, warm temperatures into next week.
