Roswell, NM Supercell 9-16-2011.

Jennifer Tucker, who is the daughter of Chaves
County Skywarn Coordinator Jim Tucker in Roswell,
 NM, shot this at 3:30 PM MDT 9-16-2011. She
  was looking SE from Sunset St & the Relief Route
in Roswell. 

The Albuquerque NWS Office issued
a Tornado Warning on this storm that was valid
from 2:23 PM - 3:00 PM MDT. The white streak in 
the middle of the photo is likely the hail shaft.

I was on my way up to Artesia for a meeting, when I snapped
this photo from 7 miles south of town on US Hwy 285 at 2:43 
PM MDT. I was  looking north, and took the photo from inside
of my car while driving down the road.

This second shot was taken a few seconds later. I just
zoomed in a little closer to try and get a better view of 
the rain free base on the southwest side of the storm.


There was a nice flanking line of new cells going up on
the western edge of the storm. I did observe one ragged
wall cloud develop underneath the rain free base shortly
before 3 PM. This wall cloud did not last long and did not 
produce a tornado as far as I am aware of. Other spotters
in Chaves County did observe a funnel cloud earlier.

 This was a low-topped, high-based supercell
thunderstorm. We typically can see quite a few 
of them in the late summer or early fall here in SE NM.
