Severe Thunderstorms In Lea County - I Get Virga Bombed In Culberson County.



Visibility Down To Less Than 100 Yards At Times This Morning.
My Day Started Off With Dense Fog In Northern Culberson County.




While leaving the Gas Plant where I am employed west of Orla in northern Culberson County of West Texas a encountered a dry thunderstorm which produced wind gusts estimated at 60 mph. These virga bombs produced pockets of blowing dust which knocked the visibility down to near zero at times. A few cloud to ground lightning strikes were noted with these and later a few rain drops splattered my dust covered windshield as I head northwest towards the Texas/New Mexico state line.
