Current Weather 2.1 NNW Downtown Carlsbad, NM

Widespread Haboob - June 5, 2013.

Blog Updated 5:50 AM MDT, Friday, June 7, 2013.





I was 25 miles west of Jal, New Mexico yesterday evening at sunset looking back off to the northeast at this severe thunderstorm as it blew up over Lea County. This lone supercell thunderstorm formed ahead of a line of severe thunderstorms that produced a widespread Haboob, which moved southward across southeastern New Mexico and west Texas. Nice and knuckled up.

Carrie shot this as the Haboob was approaching the Artesia area yesterday evening. This massive wall of blowing dust reduced the visibility down to zero all across the local area as it moved southward.
