Episode Narrative High pressure aloft became centered over Missouri with weaker centers present over parts of eastern New Mexico. This pattern maintained a persistent south to north steering component for storms that developed within a deep monsoonal moisture plume over the state. Precipitable water values were 150-200% of normal. A well-defined easterly wave sliding into the state from the east also provided an additional source of instability for thunderstorms.
Event Narrative Rapidly rising water in an arroyo near San Antonio resulted in the closure of State Road 1. Flood waters also impacted a nearby home about halfway between Luis Lopez and San Antonio.
