Some crazy storm battered Alaska a few days ago, and now the aftermath of that storm is going to make it down around these parts. We won't get snow, but it will be cold, and since we are desert rats, it's always best to be prepared. Time to head to Walmart for Pop Tarts and water!

The good news is, we have a lot of advance warning so you can bring in plants, pets, and get your outdoor pipes wrapped. Even though the weather around El Paso doesn't get really bad during the winter, it is a good idea to make sure that all those things are taken care of well in advance of any freezes so you don't have to worry about any damage.

From the KVIA weather team, here is their First Alert map so you can see the times of the possible freeze that is headed our way. El Paso is in the freeze watch zone from Wednesday into Thursday morning.
