24-Hour SE NM Rainfall Totals.



Finally some rain has fallen in the area. Although some folks have had to pay a pretty big price for the rain, having been bombed with some giant hailstones, including 4" diameter (grapefruit size) hail in the Crossroads, NM (Lea County) area yesterday evening.


Talk about hail! Mounds of hail, piling 2-4 feet were seen near the Potter/Moore County line in the Texas Panhandle

A slow moving severe thunderstorm dumped up to 5" - 6" of rain in a one to two hour period about 3 miles south of Materson, Texas (Potter County), or about 26 miles north of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle during the late afternoon of April 11th. Hail up to golfballs size (13/4" in diameter) accompanied the rain. The resultant flash flood caused a normally dry creek to rise to a depth of 15', and piled hail up into drifts of 3' - 4' on US Hwy 287. The highway was closed for over twelve hours due to the drifts of hail and mud.
