El Paso Weather: Widespread rain Tuesday afternoon

El Paso News

The Borderland is expecting widespread rain this afternoon well into the evening hours. 

A series of upper waves will bring widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms across the entire region today.

A few thunderstorms may become strong or severe, especially if we can get some good day time heating to take place this afternoon. This will either make us or break us. 

If we don’t get enough heat in El Paso, then just expect showers to continue all day long. But if we do get enough heat, this will help develop strong storms. This means you would see the possibility of hail and heavy rainfall.

Drier and quieter conditions will prevail Thursday and through the weekend.

Temperatures will slowly climb up towards 76°, which is normal for this time of the year, by the weekend.
