Episode Narrative The core of a high pressure ridge aloft was situated west of New Mexico while a trough of lower pressure was located to the east of the state. The resultant northerly flow aloft over New Mexico forced a surface back door cold front into northeast areas of the state that eventually backed up along the east slopes of the northern mountains. Low level east to west or up-slope flow aided shower and thunderstorm activity. Isolated showers and thunderstorms developed over the eastern slopes of the central and northern during the afternoon with a few strong to severe storms developing later in the evening near the Texas border.
Event Narrative Hail lasted for roughly ten minutes with hail ranging from dime to quarter sized.
