Severe Thunderstorms Today! Flash Flood Watch In Effect!


May 3, 2015 6:14 PM MDT.
Red Hills Gas Plant (Agave Energy) 21 Miles WNW Jal, NM.




A few scattered thunderstorms developed yesterday afternoon but stayed below severe limits. Some of these produced hail. We had hail at the plant for 11 minutes which ranged in size from peas to dimes and then a few penny's. Today's thunderstorms will pack a much stronger punch!







The seasons first volley of severe thunderstorms will impact the area today into tonight. Thunderstorms are already starting to develop south of us as of this writing. Any thunderstorm that develops today will have the potential to quickly become severe...especially this afternoon into the evening hours. 

Isolated tornadoes, large hail some of which may be very large (golf ball size of larger), damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 58 mph, deadly cloud to ground lightning strikes, and locally heavy rainfall which will lead to localized flash flooding are in store for today and tonight. 


Valid @ 6 PM MDT Wednesday.

Valid @ 9 AM MDT Wednesday.

Flash flooding of normally dry arroyo's, small streams, city streets and intersections, and other low lying areas that are prone to flooding will be a possibility today into tomorrow morning. Storm total rainfall amounts in some locals could reach or exceed 4.00" by Wednesday.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
