Episode Narrative An upper low over Colorado provided adequate wind shear and instability to produce a severe weather outbreak across central and eastern sections of New Mexico. Several of the storms became tornadic while others produced large hail, damaging winds and flooding rain.
Event Narrative Heavy rain caused an already full retention pond at the Roswell Country Club to overflow. Water seeped into three nearby homes.
