El Paso turned into a winter wonderland overnight as the season’s first snowfall blanketed the Borderland.
Scenes from the field in West El Paso . We also have crews in Pine Springs where snow is starting to accumulate on the mountain; Dell City where roads are clear but pretreated and Alpine/Ft. Davis/Marfa/Marathon where crews have treated ice patches on US67 and pretreated SH17. pic.twitter.com/qVYPlYbeRs— TxDOT El Paso (@txdotelp) December 29, 2018
The bulk of the snow fell in East and Northeast El Paso.
Transmountain and Scenic Drive remain closed due to slippery conditions. Although the snow has come to a stop, TxDOT crews continue to treat the wet and slippery roadways.
Winter weather advisory has been lifted for much of the Borderland area. The snow may be over, but the black ice is now the real issue. Be safe! pic.twitter.com/Jd1v5qcpiP— Monica Cortez (@MonicaKTSM) December 29, 2018
El Paso will remain in the 30s throughout Saturday with overnight lows in the 20s.
More snow is not expected to fall Saturday evening, but there is a chance for another round on Tuesday into Wednesday.
