Episode Narrative The upper-level high was positioned from northern Arizona southeast across west central New Mexico. A backdoor cold front that made its way into the state the previous night was the main focus of thunderstorm development. Additional low and mid level monsoonal moisture further boosted instability and precipitable water values, which were already 100 to 125 percent of normal. Locally heavy rainfall was observed with radar estimated rainfall rates up to 5 inches per hour.
Event Narrative The New Mexico Rail Runner suspended operations around 6pm as a southbound train was stranded near Pena Blanca due to flowing water over the tracks.
