...Sharply colder temperatures including a late season freeze
expected for portions of the region Saturday night/Sunday

An intense upper level trough will send a strong cold front
through the area Saturday evening. Temperatures will fall quickly
into the 30`s and 40`s Saturday night. Record lows will be
possible with the coldest temperatures across northern portions of
Lea county and the higher terrain of the Guadalupe and Davis
Mountains. In these areas, a light, late season freeze is expected
with lows Sunday morning in the upper 20`s and low 30`s. Many of
these locations have yet to fully green-up, but any sensitive
plants should be covered or protected. Strong northerly winds will
also create wind chills mostly in the teens and 20`s areawide
Sunday morning.
