... Arctic air arrives tonight along with wintry precipitation...

A blast of Arctic air will send temperatures plunging this evening.
Stiff northerly winds of 15 to 25 mph will drop wind chills into
the teens and 20s behind the front tonight. By Thursday morning,
low temperatures will range from the upper teens in northern Lea
County to around 30 near Fort Stockton and 40 to 45 along the Rio
Grande.

As cold, northeast upslope winds push into The Trans Pecos after
midnight, an upper disturbance will approach and could develop a
wintry mix of freezing rain, snow, sleet, freezing drizzle, and
rain along the Interstate 10 corridor and higher terrain of the
Davis Mountains northward into the Permian Basin and southeast New
Mexico. The southern extent of the frozen precipitation will be
along a line extending from roughly Van Horn to Marfa to alpine to
Sheffield. Although precipitation amounts are expected to be
light, dangerous travel conditions could exist in these areas late
Wednesday night into Thursday as high temperatures are expected to
stay in the 30s except along the Rio Grande. Friday morning will
be even colder, so prepare your plants, pipes, pets, and vehicles
for cold weather. Keep abreast of the latest weather forecasts and
information for possible changes.
