Episode Narrative A weak upper disturbance moved slowly southward over southern New Mexico and far west Texas within a moist, unstable air mass. An approaching jet streak from the west along with low level easterly flow provided favorable vertical wind shear and sufficient lift for a severe weather outbreak.
Event Narrative Homes were flooded near Peachtree Hill northeast of Las Cruces. The U.S. 70 frontage road in this area was covered by up to 3 feet of water, and all major streets on the east mesa of Las Cruces were under water.
