Episode Narrative A weak shortwave progressing through upper level southerly flow combined with instability along an eastward mixing dryline to produce severe thunderstorms across west Texas and southeastern New Mexico. A strong low level jet and an approaching cold front increased both instability and lift. Though a tornado watch was issued for much of the Permian Basin and the upper Trans-Pecos, large hail ended up being the primary threat. No tornadoes were reported with these storms.
Event Narrative Golfball size hail fell between Knowles and the Lea, New Mexico and Gaines, Texas county line.
