Episode Narrative A negatively tilted upper level trough approached the region from the west resulting in large scale ascent over the Southeast New Mexico Plains. This, combined with surface convergence along a dryline, and breaks in the low level cloud cover allowed for destabilization of the atmosphere. Both mid to low level lapse rates were also favorable for strong ascent. As a Pacific cold front approached the region, convection began to organize resulting in severe storms with damaging winds and large hail.
