... Arctic air to invade the region Wednesday night with wintry
precipitation possible Wednesday night and Thursday morning...

A blast of Arctic air will send temperatures plunging late Wednesday
afternoon north of Interstate 20, and over the rest of the forecast
area Wednesday night. Stiff northerly winds of 15 to 25 mph will
drop wind chills into the teens and 20s behind the front. By
Thursday morning, low temperatures will range from the upper
teens in northern Lea County, to around 30 near Fort Stockton and
near 40 along the Rio Grande.

As cold, northeast upslope winds push into The Trans Pecos after
midnight, an upper air disturbance will approach and could result in
a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow along the Interstate
10 corridor. Areas possible affected include, southern Culberson,
Jeff Davis, northern Brewster, southern Reeves and Pecos counties.
Dangerous travel conditions could exist in these areas Thursday
morning, if not Thursday afternoon as high temperatures may stay in
the 30s, except along the Rio Grande. Friday morning will be even
colder, so prepare your plants, pipes, pets and vehicles for the
cold weather. Keep abreast of the latest weather forecast and
information for possible changes.
