Episode Narrative A second round of thunderstorms for the day developed over the higher terrain of the northern mountains by the afternoon and then pushed into the eastern plains. Higher surface dewpoint temperatures in the mid 50's to lower 60's over west Texas were advected into southeast and east central New Mexico and acted as fuel for convection throughout the day. Increased moisture and instability with daytime heating continued convection through the late evening hours. Large damaging hail was the primary impact of these storms.
Event Narrative A long track tornadic supercell thunderstorm that developed over far western portions of the Caprock in extreme southeast Guadalupe county produced significant and widespread damage along a path that stretched from over 100 miles from approximately 15 miles north of Fort Sumner to near the New Mexico / Texas state line south of Causey. This was the first of two relatively short tornado damage paths that were surveyed.
