El Paso to see up to four inches of snow, below freezing temps overnight


It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter here in El Paso.

A rain-snow mix of precipitation has fallen across the area on Friday as a KTSM Weather Authority Alert remains in place.

These winter weather conditions won’t stop Friday.

A strong low pressure system will make its way into the borderland Friday night, and is expected to bring one to four inches of snow overnight into Saturday morning.

El Paso’s predicted overnight low will dip into the 20s, which will allow the snowfall to accumulate.

The storm will cause lower visibility and slushy, slick roads, so be sure to drive with caution.

Las Cruces is also projected to see three inches of snow overnight, while Cloudcroft and Silver City could see more than eight inches.

On Saturday, El Paso’s forecasted high will remain in the upper 30s. The snowstorm is expected to wrap up later in the evening.

A chance for more snow is in the forecast later next week.
