Episode Narrative Deep moisture remained over the eastern plains on the 21st, allowing thunderstorms to form and produce localized areas of heavy rain. A Mesoscale Convective Complex formed late on the 21st over the east central plains and drifted south during the night. Very heavy rain from slow moving thunderstorms produced significant flash flooding during the early morning of the 22nd around Hagerman.
Event Narrative Heavy rain caused the normally dry Rio Felix to rise 10 feet and flood Lincoln road west of Hagerman.
