EL PASO, Texas (KTSM)- A cold front will continue to drag in moisture for increased rain chances as well as drop afternoon highs to become below average.

Today, we are forecasting rain chances throughout the rest of the day with our best chances in the the morning.

It looks like we will see steady showers from 4 a.m. until 3 p.m. Storm chances will stay low, but we could see patches of moderate to heavy rainfall.

This is dragged in from a cold front that will drop highs to the 50s across the borderland.

Make sure to dress in layers and have a thicker jacket handy, since we will not see much of a warm up this afternoon. In fact, our morning lows will be in the 50s.

In Las Cruces, we are forecasting a high of 53°, which is 5° below average and a 12° drop from yesterday.

Winds will come from the west at 10-15 mph, so wind chill will make temperatures feel even cooler.
