Episode Narrative An upper level storm system remained quasi-stationary over portions of southeastern Arizona. Ahead of this upper low, an upper level disturbance moved around the periphery of the low and aided in the development of thunderstorms over southeastern New Mexico overnight. As the disturbance moved across southeastern New Mexico, thunderstorms developed southwestward into portions of southwest Texas.

Thunderstorms developed into an organized line that moved across much of West Texas producing strong to severe weather across a good portion of the Permian Basin. Rainfall rates of one to two inches per hour also resulted in flash flooding from portions of southeastern New Mexico eastward into the northern Permian Basin.
Event Narrative Multiple reports of at least six inches of water flowing over several streets in the city of Carlsbad. The flooding continued for several hours.
