Haboob Approaching Roswell, NM Yesterday Afternoon.

A strong cold front, and yet another Haboob, plowed southwestward and southward into southeastern New Mexico last night. Thick blowing dust reduced the visibility down to less than one mile in many areas, then the temperature drop made it feel like early fall, not the middle of summer. Then finally the rains arrived.
A really weird pattern is underway with the retrograding upper-level low located over Oklahoma this morning, which is still moving westward. Counter clockwise flow around this storm, and lift and low-level moisture behind the cold front, helped to set off last nights and this mornings rain. More is on the way...in fact more than likely there will be much much more rain today into Thursday!
