Tornado South Of Dora In Roosevelt County - 5-29-2015.

A line of Severe Thunderstorms formed over northeastern and eastern New Mexico late yesterday afternoon and marched southeastward. I shot this Tail End Charlie storm some 50 miles to my north as it was approaching Lovington, NM in Lea County. I was on Hwy 128 in Lea and Eddy Counties looking north. It had a nice overshooting top and was Severe Warned at the time.

CBMAM Clouds & Round Two Today Into Tonight.

Mother nature did put on a nice show for us at the Red Hills Gas Plant where I am employed 21 miles WNW of  Jal in Lea County. I shot the four photos above of the Cumulonimbus Mammatus (CBMAM) clouds. These clouds themselves do not produce severe weather but are often noted with severe thunderstorms that do. 
Our first Tornado Watch of the year turned out to be a bust here in southeastern New Mexico. Instead it was northeastern and eastern New Mexico's turn to get beat up by mother nature. Quarter (1.00" in dia) to hen egg (2.00" in dia) size fell in several locations yesterday afternoon including the Clovis and Portales areas. No tornadoes were reported in New Mexico.

Brrrrrrrrrrrr...its flat out chilly out there this morning. Currently my thermometer says its 53°F here at our home in Carlsbad, NM.

So this means that we have a chance of tying or breaking our record low-max temps for the date today. Which are listed below:
Roswell 62°F in 1900 Artesia 55°F in 2003 Carlsbad 55°F in 2003 Hobbs 64°F in 1943
