Haboob's & Heavy Rain Yesterday Afternoon.
Artesia got hit with another haboob this afternoon as thunderstorms to the south, and southeast, produced outflow winds that gusted up to 54 mph at the airport at 3:55 PM MDT. I shot this photo near the southern city limits, on U.S. Hwy 285 at 3:47 PM. The visibility was down to less than 1/4 of a mile.
Late yesterday afternoon a haboob moved into Tatum from the northeast. Outflow winds from a strong thunderstorm to the northeast of Tatum generated this dust cloud. Courtesy Of Tatum Weather.
This haboob was observed near Roswell yesterday afternoon.
