URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service El Paso Tx/Santa Teresa NM
528 PM MST Fri Feb 23 2018

...Approaching Pacific trough will keep winds breezy to windy
across the region into the evening hours, and most of the night
over east slope locations...

.A Pacific storm system approaching from the west is working to
move strong winds aloft over the region. In addition a tightening
surface pressure gradient will also speed up winds across the
Borderland this evening and overnight. For much of the region
winds will rapidly drop off an hour or so after sunset. However
locations in the vicinity of east slopes and over higher
elevation will likely see winds stay strong deep into the night
and possibly early into the morning hours.
