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 thunderstorm moved into Eddy County and produced heavy rain in Carlsbad. A report from the southwest side of Carlsbad indicated six inches of running water flowing from curb to curb. The damage cost is a very rough estimate as there was not any damage reported with the flooding.
