Episode Narrative A quasi-stationary cold front was located over the north central portion of the county warning area this day. Water vapor imagery indicated the approach of an upper level shortwave trough into the area during the evening hours from the Four Corners Region. Moderate surface based CAPE values along the front were also noted. The combination of increased surface convergence along the front, the cooling of the mid to upper levels with the shortwave trough, and increased deep layer shear resulted in one severe storm producing hail over Lea County, NM.
