Several debris balls were noted with these tornadoes on radar as they tore through west-northeast of Little Rock, Arkansas last night. A debris ball occurs when a large tornado picks up a large number of objects on the ground and lofts them into the air.

Another tornado (Tornado #2) was likely spawned a short time later by the same storm and tracked through White, Jackson, and Independence Counties. Note: Tornado #2 may actually be several tornadoes.

NWS Mesonent 24-Hour Rainfall Totals. (As Of 6 AM MDT.)





Estimated Rainfall Totals Using GRLevel 3 2.00.


Although the bright yellow and orange shaded areas indicate that widespread rainfall amounts of 1.00" to 2.00" fell across much of Eddy County New Mexico yesterday, these radar estimated rainfall totals are too high. Based on actual measurements across the local area it appears that the radar was overestimating the rainfall totals by up to 1.50".  
The good news is that widespread rainfall totals of around .25" were noted with some locations getting more than .50". I measured .58" here at our home in Carlsbad. A National Weather Service employee measured 1.56" of rainfall 10 miles north-northeast of El Paso yesterday afternoon.
