El Paso has always fascinated me. It’s so far removed from the rest of the major urban areas, but is still such a large city. It’s a mystery right here in America. Have you ever heard El Paso described so romantically?
At 651, MT, El Paso was reporting a temperature of 57 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. The tail end of a cold front lies through the southeastern US and into central Texas, and feeding into it, at least aloft, there is some streaming cirrus through west Texas, likely to keep the temperatures from falling off too much overnight.
A broad, generally weak trough extends from Montana to southern California, and is indicating the flow through west Texas. The exit region of the jet will continue to run from the Baja towards the central Plains, which isn’t a particularly moisture rich course. Don’t expect precipitation for El Paso, but a continuation of the high clouds that are mottling the sky tonight.

That will feel a little brisk out in the open country around El Paso, but I tell you what, I would take a low in the mid 50s regardless of the wind. I would take a high in the mid-50s at this point. Here is the satellite, showing that cirruse traipsing over West Texas.
