Weather Authority Alert: Strong storm system to last through Wednesday morning


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – An unusual weather system for the month of March, produced thunderstorms, hail, strong winds and heavy rainfall Tuesday afternoon.

This system will let up for a brief moment late Tuesday afternoon, before picking up again Tuesday evening.

The storm system will last through Wednesday morning, producing up to an inch of rain for parts of El Paso.

Drive safely during your commute this evening, as we will see plenty of slick roads across the city.

Our area will dry out Thursday and Friday before the next storm system arrives Saturday through Monday. This rainmaker is expected to be weaker than the one that hit our area this afternoon.
