East Carlsbad, NM Hit With A Wet Microburst Sunday.









A Wet Microburst from a thunderstorm slammed the east side of Carlsbad, New Mexico yesterday afternoon. My family and I were at the Elks Pool at the time, and I took all of the above photos from there. The thunderstorm was located to our east, and I estimated that we got rocked by at least 60 mph wind gusts at the pool.

 A home weather station located in the Ridgecrest Subdivision, on the Carlsbad Municipal Golf Course, recorded a peak wind gust from this thunderstorm of 70 mph at 3:09 PM MDT. That station recorded .49" from the storm, while my home weather station located on the northwest side of town only recorded a trace of rain. No doubt heavier rain fell east and southeast of the pool. As far as I am aware, there was no hail associated with the storm. I guess you can say that instead of core punching this storm, I got cored punched by it. It was an interesting experience, since we all ran to the bathrooms and the main lodge to seek shelter from the storm.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
