T-Storms Produce Locally Hvy Rain Wed Aftn!

Thunderstorms returned to SE NM yesterday afternoon. One of these became severe six miles south of Seven Rivers at 4:45 PM MDT. However, to my knowledge no severe weather reports were received on this storm. It did produce some heavy rainfall and a Urban and small stream flood advisory was issued on it by the Midland National Weather Service Office at 5:11 PM MDT. The weak upper level low that was responsible for producing this latest round of thunderstorms was located near Hobbs early this morning. This feature will drift slowly westward us another round of scattered afternoon thunderstorms across the SE NM Plains. A couple of these may produce locally heavy rainfall once again. The weekend looks hot with afternoon high temps climbing up to around 100 .

Rain Falls Upon The Plain.

Heavy rainfall fell across the local area the end of last week, continuing into this past weekend. This July is shaping up to go down in the history books as being one of the top ten wettest in parts of SE NM. Our chances of seeing additional heavy rainfall will increase over the area tomorrow and Wednesday. The remnants of a Tutt low now located in Texas, will move westward into New Mexico over the next couple of days, enhancing our chances for additional rainfall.
