Episode Narrative As an upper level low pressure system progressed eastward across the Baja of California, an upper level disturbance traversed over the region and provided needed atmospheric lift. Status clouds encompassing the area during the morning hours quickly dissipated, allowing for good surface heating. This combination of clearing and atmospheric lift along with abundant low level moisture set the stage for thunderstorm development across southeastern New Mexico and west Texas.
Event Narrative Quarter sized hail was reported at Brantley Dam.
