National Weather Service El Paso: ‘Widespread Snow on Thursday’
I’m issuing a Caldo Alert, y’all.
A winter storm is marching towards El Paso, and not only is it going to get really, really cold Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 3-5, but it’s really going to snow.
Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
The National Weather Service El Paso is now predicting the winter storm is – and I quote -- bringing widespread snow on Thursday. The social media post caption has four snowflake emojis so you know they’re super serious.
A strong cold front and winter storm system will bring scattered snow showers to the region Thursday morning, with the highest accumulations over the Sacramento Mtns. 1-2" of snow is possible for the El Paso metro.
Dangerously Low Temperatures
Although Snowpacolyspe 2022 is only expected to be a one-day weather event, NWSEP is warning El Pasoans to expect the coldest temperatures this winter the following two days.
Bitterly cold temperatures will pose a threat Thursday through Saturday morning. Dangerously cold wind chills may impact plumbing and outdoor gas lines.
