Episode Narrative An upper level trough across the Great Basin resulted in southwest flow aloft across West Texas and Southeast New Mexico. The combination of disturbances moving northeast across the area, strong daytime heating and good low level moisture ahead of the dryline resulted in severe weather across the area. The main threat during this episode was large hail and strong damaging winds.
Event Narrative There were numerous damage reports associated with this severe thunderstorm. The damage path has been estimated according to these reports. At 1945 MST, a trained spotter reported that a small camper was blown over onto a pickup truck near the intersection of Kincaid Rd and Highway 385. Significant damage was done to the camper. About five minutes later, 30' long by 20' wide metal sheds were destroyed about 5 miles south of Artesia and an Atoka, NM resident had his porch awning blown off his house. Around 1955 MST, thunderstorm wind gusts snapped a power pole in half near the junction of 4 Dinkus Rd and Highway 285.
