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 24 foot long gooseneck cattle trailer and center pivot irrigation system were blown over by strong thunderstorm winds. Additionally, five powerline poles were downed along New Mexico State Highway 206.
