El Paso will begin a warming trend that could lead to near record highs just in time for Christmas Day.
El Paso will see a high pressure system take over, which is expected to warm afternoon highs to the low 70s through the weekend.
Afternoon highs are expected to near record highs Thursday through the weekend, which means Christmas Day is expected to see highs just a couple of degrees shy from the record that day.
Winds will also be an issue. A few wind makers will impact the Borderland starting Thursday and last through Sunday.
A cold front is expected to cool afternoon highs next week.
