Episode Narrative An upper level ridge axis was located over Southeast New Mexico and far West Texas with plentiful moisture as far west as the Guadalupe Mountains. A couple shortwaves moved across the area and lapse rates were steep, so there was sufficient lift and instability for severe thunderstorms to develop. Storms initially formed in the Davis Mountains and moved northward into the Trans Pecos, and additional storms developed across Southeast New Mexico.
Event Narrative A severe thunderstorm moved over Eddy county. A farmer reported a very bent, similar to a horseshoe, cloud that extended down from the thunderstorm and a dust cloud at the base.
