Radar at 5:58 PM CDT.

A line of  very light rain showers and a few isolated thunderstorms moved southeastward out of eastern New Mexico and into west Texas Sunday afternoon, ahead of an approaching weak upper-level disturbance. Most of this activity (show above on the radar snapshot) was virga.

As this line of showers and virga moved into the Lubbock, Texas area Sunday evening, it formed a haboob that rolled across the city. My wife and I had just arrived at our hotel as the haboob rolled into Lubbock. I shot the photos above from out hotel on the south 289 Loop, looking back west towards the Marsha Sharp Freeway. In five minutes time the visibility dropped down to less than one quarter of a mile in blowing dust and sand.

  1. Amazing dust cloud - same trough rolled in here 4-5 hours before. Cleared out 2+ days of gloom, and it warmed up to room temperature, but the dust in the air was thick but never like your Lubbock scene or the kind that hits your skin and stings.
