Episode Narrative Persistent south to southeast winds continued to bring deep layer moisture to the area. Strong upslope surface flow in the higher terrain of west Texas and southeast New Mexico provided the needed atmospheric lift for thunderstorm development, even though instability and wind shear were only mild at best.
Event Narrative A cooperative observation station measured a thunderstorm wind gust of 65 mph. A Texas Tech Mesonet station also measured a severe thunderstorm gust of 58 mph. No damage was reported.
