Episode Narrative The combination of an upper level disturbance, a nocturnal low level jet, and advancing outflow boundaries acting on an unstable air mass allowed a mesoscale convective system (MCS) to form just east of the Texas Big Bend and Coahuila Province in Mexico, which raced east southeast across the Deep South Texas brush country to the King Ranch during the mid and late evening of June 2nd. Additional strong storms formed toward midnight from northern Hidalgo into Willacy County. Wind gusts above 50 mph were common along the line, particularly in Jim Hogg and Brooks County, with pockets of damage occurring in stronger gusts.
Event Narrative A squall line of strong to severe thunderstorms moved through northern and central Brooks County during the late evening of June 2nd, producing gusty winds which knocked down some power lines in Falfurrias. Law enforcement measured a gust of 54 mph at 922 PM CST as the line plowed through.
