Episode Narrative A back door cold front along with an upper impulse within northerly flow aloft triggered severe thunderstorms with large hail on June 20th. On the 21st, the front was still present but under increasing heights. The resulting warming trend increased dewpoint depressions and raised the microburst threat.
Event Narrative Winds estimated at 65 mph knocked out power, toppled two large trees and closed the interstate (due to low visibility from blowing dust) in and around Deming.
