Episode Narrative A subtle shortwave in northwest flow aloft helped to spark thunderstorms across western New Mexico. As storms moved east into better moisture, they became severe and produced large hail and damaging winds. Areas in and southeast of Roswell were the hardest hit and sustained significant damage from the powerful straight line winds. The Roswell Industrial Airport was on the southwest edge of the strongest winds.
Event Narrative A spotter estimated a wind gust of at least 80 mph, with sustained winds around 55 mph.
