Clouds Topping The Guadalupe's. On my way home from work this past Tuesday I was able to capture these two shots looking west along the New Mexico/Texas State line (east of US Hwy 62/180) at clouds topping the Guadalupe Mountains.  Wet Past 7-Days.

Artesia Climate Co-Op Station. Roswell Airport. This past week has been a soaker for the eastern one half of New Mexico including the Southeastern Plains. As of 9 AM MDT this morning the heaviest 7-Day rainfall total I can come up with in the local area is 5.59" measured at the Portales CoCoRaHS Station located 5.1 miles south-southwest of town.

Blog Updated At 7:14 AM MDT. 24-Hour Radar Estimated Rainfall Totals. (As Of 6 AM MDT This Morning). Midland NWS Dual Pol Doppler Radar. (Using GRLevelX Software). NWS AHPS River Observations. Radar estimated that 4.50" of rain fell over the Dark Canyon Arroyo 12 miles west of Whites City yesterday morning. This produced flash flooding in Dark Canyon. The Dark Canyon flood gauge located north of Whites City and southwest of Carlsbad measured a maximum water depth in the normally dry arroyo of 6.15 feet at 11:15 AM MDT Monday morning. By the time the flood waters worked their way northeastward into Carlsbad the Dark Canyon flood gauge located near the low water crossing bridge on San Jose Blvd measured a peak depth of 3.9 feet at 8:30 AM MDT yesterday. This falls way short of the flooding that was observed in September of 2014 when water depths exceeded 20 feet at the gauge in town.  3-Day Radar Estimated Rainfall Totals.

Broken taillights  and running lights on the new camper." The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

Blog Updated At 8:10 PM MDT. Looking Southeast From Whites City At 6:26 PM MDT Saturday, Sept 23, 2017. My wife jumped into the truck and headed southwest to Whites City Saturday afternoon to chase this supercell thunderstorm pictured above. As impressive as this storm was when I shot this photo it was even more so on radar before we got down there. It had formed a wall cloud but we didn't notice any significant rotation when I took this photo. The storm had already begun to weaken.
