Episode Narrative A weak upper level disturbance rounded the upper high centered over southwest New Mexico aided shower and thunderstorm development across central and eastern portions of the state. Dry low level air produced very strong downdrafts in the Albuquerque area, which resulted in blowing dust ahead of the storm, and blinding rain within the storm. Meanwhile, across the northeast, storms rolled off the higher terrain into better low level moisture, organized and moved eastward. Abundant amounts of lightning was noted with these hail and gusty outflow wind producing storms.
