.NOW...
AT 830 AM A BAND OF LIGHT PRECIPITATION CONTINUED TO STREAM
NORTHEAST ACROSS PORTIONS OF EL PASO AND HUDSPETH COUNTIES IN
TEXAS AND SOUTHERN OTERO COUNTY IN NEW MEXICO. MOST OF THIS
PRECIPITATION IS FALLING AS A RAIN AND SNOW MIX AT LOWER ELEVATIONS
WITH MOSTLY LIGHT SNOW ABOVE 5000 FEET. ONE TO TWO INCHES OF SNOW COULD
STILL ACCUMULATE ABOVE 5000 FEET THROUGH LATE MORNING AS
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN STEADY IN THE LOWER 30S UNDER
AN OVERCAST SKY. MOST ROADWAYS IN THE AREA APPEAR TO BE WET AS
OPPOSED TO ICE AND SNOW COVERED. HOWEVER EXPOSED SURFACES SUCH AS
BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES COULD STILL BECOME SLICK WHILE
PRECIPITATION IS IN PROGRESS.
