Artesia Hailstorm Monday, June 17th, 2019.




A Severe Thunderstorm dropped quarter (1.00" diameter) to 1.25" diameter hail that covered the ground around 7:30 PM MDT Monday, June 17th. Several rounds of hail were observed. Heavy rain also accompanied the storm with radar estimating around 3.50" of rain having fallen 5-6 miles west-southwest of town just south of US Hwy 82.


A Personal Weather Station (PWS) measured 1.96" of rainfall in the center of town. Another classic example of how localized severe thunderstorms can be as well as their heavy rainfall and flash flooding.
