Weather Authority Alert: Big changes ahead for the Borderland with cool conditions


El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The Borderland is under a Weather Authority Alert as it can expect one more day of near-record temperatures before a cold wave of Canadian air moves into the region and drops highs nearly 30 degrees into Wednesday.

El Paso and Las Cruces can expect to see temperatures in the upper 90’s Tuesday afternoon, however this will be short-lived as temperatures will drop much quicker than usual into the evening.

This comes as a strong anticipated cold front is expected to move our way. Temperatures will drop into the 80’s after 7pm this evening and expecting to cool into lows in the 50’s come Wednesday morning.

Along with the cold-front, moisture will move into the Borderland. This will increase rain chances for the afternoon hours. Showers and thunderstorms will be seen throughout the evening into the morning of Wednesday.

Temperatures will not warm-up very much for Wednesday, with highs nearing the lower 70’s.

Rain chances will remain and stay prominent throughout the region Wednesday at 60%.

The Borderland will see temperature highs in the 70’s lasting into Thursday before warming up into the 80’s by the weekend.

Rain chances will stick with us until the start of the following week.
