Weather on the go: El Paso expects to match record temperatures Tuesday afternoon


El Paso, TX — Dry heat will continue to takeover the Borderland as high-pressure flows through the area. The high-pressure and drier air will favor rising temperatures Tuesday afternoon, with highs nearing or matching record temperatures.

Temperature highs throughout the region will reach temperatures 8-11 degrees above normal. El Paso should normally be seeing highs at 79 degrees but will warm up into the 90s this afternoon. If the Borderland reached its expected high of 91 degrees it will match the record high set in 2017.

Along with heat calm winds and no rain chances are expected.

Record temperatures are expected to continue into Wednesday with an expected high of 95 degrees, and if met, it would surpass its previous record of 92 degrees.

After two days of high heat, a cold front will move into the Borderland Thursday afternoon. This will allow for temperature highs stay in the lower 80s.

The strong front will continue to provide cooler conditions into Friday with highs expecting to reach the upper 70s.

A warming trend will begin into the weekend but will be short lived as a weak cold front moves in from the east.
