Episode Narrative Severe weather erupted across portions of the eastern plains during the afternoon hours as a strong shortwave moved across northern New Mexico. Dewpoints in the mid 50s to low 60s, abundant instability, and 40 to 50 knots of 0 to 6 km shear was present across the northeast quarter of the state. Storms formed along the east slopes of the central mountain chain and quickly became supercellular as they moved into more unstable air. Very large hail, damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado resulted from the storms.
