Jim says- "This shot was taken at the NM/TX state line south of Jal looking west at an approaching severe thunderstorm. This shelf or roll cloud had formed as the storm approached the Jal area. The storm was elongated N-S, with the upper level blow off going NE, but storm motion was east. This put the core updraft on the SE edge, pretty much along the leading edge rather than at the normal rear of the storm. We see this often with right movers around here."

  1. Nice scenes, and I hope you all got some rain, but I bet nothing in Carlsbad...too far W?

    I went storm chasing last in April or May of 1991, when I moved back to Denver...drove all the way to Goodland KS, but an inactive dryline. Only to move to Abq, where weather is rather benign in comparison.

  2. I picked up .31" here at the house yesterday afternoon. The storms were pretty scattered in nature. But hey, its a start, and I am just happy to see t-storms return to southeastern New Mexico.
