...WINTER COMES TO WEST TEXAS AND SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO THIS
WEEK...

A strong cold front will plow through West Texas and Southeast
New Mexico tonight.  An upper level storm system will follow in
its wake Tuesday night through Thursday. Moisture will overrun
the cold air behind the front, resulting in a wintry mix of
precipitation Tuesday night through Thursday. A mixture of light
rain, sleet, snow, and freezing rain is likely across much of West
Texas and Southeast New Mexico Tuesday night and Wednesday,
changing over to snow in most locations Wednesday night.  Best
chances of precipitation will be along and south of Interstate 10.
As of now...it is too early to be definitive on precipitation
amounts and impacts across the region.  However, the recent warm
weather and warm ground temperatures will melt much of any wintry
precipitation that falls.

Folks planning travel during the mid week period should stay tuned
to the latest forecasts. Over the next couple of days there
should be more clarity to the forecast and the impacts across the
region.
