Episode Narrative Storms developed along a line from just north of Roswell to near Clovis and Broadview during the late afternoon. One storm briefly turned severe and produced strong wind gust. As the storms decayed, a heat burst resulted over Cannon AFB. Extreme winds resulted in damage across the area. Earlier in the day, non-convective winds resulted in a 50 knot gust at Las Vegas.
Event Narrative A heat burst struck Cannon Air Force Base as formerly severe thunderstorms decayed over the area. Winds peaked at 90 mph, but winds greater than 58 mph persisted for over 30 minutes causing widespread damage. These strong winds damaged roofs and broke limbs off trees. KCVS ASOS jumped from 71 to 78 degrees and the dewpoint dropped from 50 to 44 degrees. The nearby AWOS, KCVN, jumped from 73 to 81 degrees and the dewpoint dropped from 46 to 41 degrees. KCVN, however, only gusted to 43 mph.
