NM Severe Weather Summary - Wednesday, April 12, 2017.



Looking West & Northwest At The Leading Edge Of The Thunderstorms That Rolled Through Carlsbad Just After 5 PM MDT Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

This is an interesting satellite image. Notice the nice little donut hole in the center of the cluster of thunderstorms (Mesoscale Convective System or MCS). This feature also showed up nicely on radar.

Mora County Hailstorm Wednesday.
(Taken Near Rainsville, New Mexico).






Southeastern New Mexico was not the only place to get struck by severe weather Wednesday. Incredible photos coming out of Mora County near the tiny community of Rainsville. No that's not snow that piled up on the ground, that's hail and lots of it. New Mexico is not immune to these types of hail events that sometimes pile up to these depths.
