Virga Bombs & High Based T-Storms Wednesday.









Scattered high based rain showers and a few high based thunderstorms developed yesterday afternoon. I was at work when a broken line of thunderstorms consisting mostly of virga and a few light rain showers rolled over me at 4:33 PM MDT. The top four photos are of the virga bombs and blowing dust underneath this line of thunderstorms. The Paduca Raws reported a peak wind gust of 52 mph yesterday afternoon...at the time that this activity was marching eastward. The last radar snapshot shows the broken line of storms as it was moving rapidly eastward out of SE NM and into W TX. Notice the slight bowing of the line of echoes just east of my location (the red dot) along the state line.  

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
