Windy Monday, Chilly Tuesday
Happy Windy Monday! We are tracking down a strong storm system that is being led by a strong cold front.
This cold front will bring in chilly temperatures on Tuesday. Unfortunately, at this point it looks like we won't get much rain in the city for El Paso and Las Cruces, just plenty of cloud cover and chilly temperatures.
This also means that Monday's forecast will be windy as the cold front pushes in arriving overnight.
Highs on Monday will be about 10° above average lingering in the mid 60's, and tomorrow as the cold front spills it's cold air, we are expecting a high of 49°!
Winds will still be on the windy side as the cold front continues it's track SE, leaving behind that cold air.
We won't jump back up into the 60's until Christmas Day. We will be expecting a breezy Thursday with highs in the low 60's.
By Friday another cold front moves in, this one seems to be weaker than the one we are expecting on Tuesday.
The only difference on Saturday is we may get a slight chance of rain. We are still pretty far out to say with confidence if this will happen, but this is what some models are showing as of today.
The Weather Authority will make sure to keep you up to date on any new developments. Tune in tonight to NewsChannel 9 at 5,6 and 10 as Chief Meteorologist Chuck DeBroder gives you a closer look at your Christmas Forecast!
