El Paso has just seen its first Severe Thunderstorm Warning of 2019 on Monday, which lifted at 6 p.m. 

A system moved through strong enough to produce 60 mph gusts and moderate to heavy rainfall. Thankfully, it was a fast-moving storm, and it didn’t stall. 

Northwestern Otero County, Sierra County, and Dona Ana County also saw the warning through 6:15 p.m.

Whenever you hear of a Severe Thunderstorm Warning, make sure to stay indoors until the storm passes.

If you are caught out on a commute, be extra careful as there may be debris on the roadway. Never drive in a storm, where visibility has been reduced by wind or rain.  

The threat is not over. We will see more chances for thunderstorms later on tonight and through Wednesday afternoon. 

We have humid air streaming through our area until then, and with a back door cold front acting as our trigger, we are in for some chances of storms and strong gusts. 

Thanks to this cold front, we expect to dip into the mid to low 70s Tuesday and Wednesday before we heat right back up to near record highs Saturday. 

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, the timing of the weather event and the areas affected will be provided every time an alert is issued.
