Jennifer Coats captured the above photos from her home
just east of Dexter, NM Monday afternoon, May 7, 2012.
She was looking to the west-northwest from her home.
A Wall Cloud with a small tail cloud is evident along with
some small unattached scud clouds.
Rotating wall clouds that are persistent produce funnel
clouds and tornadoes.
She also captured these stunning images of cumulonimbus
mammatus clouds associated with the supercell thunderstorm.
Severe thunderstorms developed along the eastern slopes of
the Sacramento Mountains on Monday and then moved east
into the Pecos Valley, and then eventually into west Texas.
These supercell thunderstorms produced severe weather over
the local area, including at least golf ball size hail, and
damaging thunderstorm wind gusts.
If you have photos of the hail, or storms that you would
like to share here, please email them to me at:
