Wind, rain, and snow to impact the Borderland
EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Our ABC-7 StormTRACK Weather team continues to alert the public about an incoming weather system that will bring large changes here to the Borderland. On Wednesday, strong winds are expected, with gusts up to 45 mph possible. It is likely to see blowing dust and sand on Wednesday as well.
After a windy afternoon, a cold front will sweep through the area overnight, dropping our temperatures back to around freezing. With it, comes a bit of moisture as well- precipitation mixed with temperatures around freezing means snow is possible.
The NWS El Paso Office is forecasting a dusting of snow for most locations, with higher snowfall total amounts in the higher elevations, particularly the Gila Wilderness. The Franklin and Organ Mountains are likely to see a dusting as well. The snow chances will potentially lead to slick road conditions for Thursday morning. Drive with extreme caution on Thursday.
