National Weather Service El Paso Ranks the Top El Paso Weather Events in History
El Paso weather is typically more delightful than frightful.
Hey, they don't call El Paso the Sun City for nothing. But that doesn't mean we don't get some wild weather every now and then.
Remember Christmas 2015? A powerful storm system began moving into the area that evening.
The next day, on the 26th, light rain began changing into snow during the second half of the Sun Bowl game and continued through the evening. By the following morning, 8.1 inches of snow had fallen.
The Summer of 2021 will be remembered for the monsoonal rains and the unprecedented flooding they caused.
The exceptionally wet summer had us looking more like the Soggy City at times than the Sun City after several super-intense, record-breaking thunderstorms rolled through the city.
The resulting flooding each time wreaked havoc on homeowners’ properties, city streets, and every low-lying area it could find.
As epic as each of the weather events referenced above were, each dropping sizeable amounts of precipitation in their own right, none made the list of El Paso's Top Weather Events recently complied by the National Weather Service El Paso.
