Thicker high clouds will remain over the area this evening, with light west winds becoming variable shortly after sunset. A backdoor cold front will push in from the east late tonight, reaching the east slopes of the Sacramento Mountains around Midnight, bringing patchy freezing fog. The front will push west of the Rio Grande by dawn. NE to East winds will increase behind the front (especially west of mountain ranges). Low clouds will increase by dawn and through much of the morning hours, but will mainly stay east of the Franklin/Organ/San Andres mountains. Some patchy drizzle may develop in the pre-dawn hours, especially eastern El Paso, Hudspeth, and Otero Counties as the low clouds develop.
A strong cold will push through in the early morning hours, greatly lowering temperatures with breezy east winds through the day. The west slopes of area mountains will have locally windy conditions with gusts up to 40 mph. Light rain and drizzle will occur over areas well east of El Paso in the morning hours. The east slopes of the Sacramento mountains may have a mixture of freezing fog and light snow in the morning. Mostly cloudy skies will become partly cloudy in the afternoon with well below lowland temperatures in the 40s to the east and in the lower 50s in the west.
