EL PASO, Texas -- Rain and snow fell in parts of the Borderland on Wednesday afternoon as a cold front moved in.
Light snow was reported in West, Northeast and far East El Paso about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Snowfall was also spotted in the Franklin Mountains in El Paso and the Organ Mountains near Las Cruces.
The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for southern New Mexico and west Texas from 3 to 10 a.m. Thursday. NWS officials said some areas may be just above freezing tonight but low temperatures for Friday will likely affect more areas.

There’s freeze warning in effect tonight west Texas and also a high wind warning in the vicinity.
Las Cruces New Mexico is also getting hit with snow right now. Who would have thought that you have to worry about snow in October while traveling on Interstate 10 ?
Algore is looking more and more like Sydney Greenstreet as he ages.
Winter isn’t supposed to happen anymore now that we have global warming. I guess anybody smart enough to invent the internet can invent global warming.
Let me go ahead and add the perfunctory “anything that happens on the Texas-Mexico border is because of them damn illegals” post........
In after damn illegals ;)
A warming climate should certainly cause one to expect shorter winter seasons. Now on the other hand, a cooling climate would cause one to expect longer winter seasons.
Snicker... Oh the Manatee... Late summer Snow in Texas
And we know the Gorebots say that you can’t talk about the day to day weather as any indicator about global warming/climate change.
I hear the public opinion polls show erosion of support for global warming. Hopefully the Cap and Trade/Cap and Tax bill pending in Congress will be dead.
Climate is just the long term average. Weather is the short term trend. The difference is just statistical. A change in climate will first be noticed by a change in the weather patterns. Those waiting for a statistical change to be observable in the climate data during a major cooling trend, could just end up frozen solid.
Lousy journalism, no context. Why didn’t they report the last time it happened, or how often it happens?
I have serveral bets ($20) that south east Texas, Galveston Bay gets 8-10 inches of snow this winter. Never happened before but I am a big believer in global warming. lol
It is an MSM report. They were just reporting the news of the occurrence. Was hoping to find one that puts this in historical content. Did find an article from earlier in the day when it was just snowing up in the passes near Las Cruces New Mexico. People were driving up to the passes and experiencing the rare snow event. One woman apparently stated she last saw snow in the passes when she was a child. What is happening tonight is snow at low elevation. Not sticking, but snow in low elevations of El Paso and Las Cruces would be a shocker for residents. And the Cities have no way to handle snow that sticks.
I certainly would not advise betting on the weather. Heck, I gave up betting on NFL games years ago. We are entering the active period of Solar Cycle 24, but activity right now is about have way to neutral. We have not seen net warming levels from Solar Cycle 24 yet. Still cooling every day. Just a question of how severe. I would say some accumulation of snow within El Paso and Las Cruces city limits would be a good bet, but you might find few takers right now.
oops - have way should read half way
More globull warming!
We’re all gonna die!!!!!!!!
Latest Accuweather Radar shows heavy snow in Las Cruces, El Paso and Juarez Mexico. Looks like a historical event for October is shaping up down south.
Snow in Mexico? lol, Damn that global warming.
The wife and I were in south Texas two weeks ago. It was at least in the mid to high nineties in Big Bend National Park. We wonder why we went back north.
