Episode Narrative On April 11, 2009, a surface high northeast of the region resulted in easterly upslope flow over most of the CWA. Meanwhile, a mid to upper level low near Southern California approached the area from the west. Although the deepest moisture was confined to the Gulf Coast (due to the previously mentioned surface high) there was enough moisture convergence along a stalled surface boundary and dryline. Most unstable CAPE values along these features of 1000 j/kg and 0-6 km bulk shear magnitudes of 60 kt allowed for severe storms to develop as the dynamics neared the area during the late afternoon and early evening hours. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued from 1520-2300 local.
Event Narrative Golf ball size hail was reported along US 380 about 10 miles west of Tatum, NM. The hail was covering the road and the person who made the report lost control of her van. The individual was not injured. The time of the event was estimated according to the report and radar.
