Episode Narrative A broad high pressure ridge was situated over much of the U.S. The combination of a series of upper level disturbances moving around this ridge and abundant low level moisture provided by southeast flow off the Gulf of Mexico, aided in the development of showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain across portions of West Texas and southeast New Mexico.
Event Narrative Four to five feet of water flowed rapidly across New Mexico Highway 137, six miles west of that highway intersection with U.S. Highway 285. Five to six feet of water flowed through Rocky Arroyo behind the Marathon Gas Plant.
