Weather Authority Alert: 20° drop in temperatures across the borderland today

El Paso News
Wx alert

A significant temperature drop will create below normal cool temperatures in today’s forecast.

A low pressure system in our North is dropping temperatures from above average 70° temepratures to below normal 50° temperatures.

Cooler air from this low pressure system will stay within our area throughout the rest of the week, meaning we will see hard freezes in our overnight hours until this weekend.

Wind speeds will still be breezy today coming from the Northwest at 10-15 mph, and gusts at 30 mph. 

Temperatures will become more seasonal by Monday as we will be back in the upper 50s and possible 60s. 

Conditions will be mostly sunny throughout the rest of the week. 

But as of right now it looks like another major drop in temperatures will be in the forecast by early next week.

A KTSM 9 News Weather Authority Alert is issued whenever a severe weather event is expected which could disrupt and impact Borderland residents. Details on how to take action, timing of the weather event and the areas affected will be provided every time an alert is issued.
