A big low pressure system over northern New Mexico is slowly edging its way towards the Texas Panhandle, and while it's in the neighborhood, snow and wind will blast the News 5 viewing area tonight into Friday. Winter Storm Warnings, Winter Weather Advisories and Blizzard Warnings cover most of the area, with the most dangerous combination of snow and wind expected to be northern and northeastern El Paso county. (That's where the Blizzard Warnings are). Snow will decrease in intensity during the day on Friday, with cold, breezy conditions continuing. Saturday will feature more clouds than sunshine, and highs near freezing. The sunshine will return on Sunday, with warmer highs, followed by breezy, more mild conditions Monday through Thursday.
