I went storm chasing Friday afternoon and ended up 8 miles southwest of Hope when I shot this photo. This low precipitation supercell thunderstorm produced very little rainfall which is often typical of LP storms and scattered large hail. Storm chasers reported quarter to hen egg size hail in southwest Chaves County west of Hope and east of Dunken. Cyclic low-level rotation was observed from time to time with this storm.

(As Of 8 AM MDT Saturday, June 4, 2022).

Our latest round of thunderstorms has come and gone. Some of us got a lot of rain while most did not. Another case of the have's and have nots. The highest 72-hour measured rainfall total that I can find is the 1.98" reported at the Monument CoCoRaHS Station southwest of Hobbs. Overall Lea County saw the highest rainfall totals estimated by radar with 6.51" noted west of Eunice. 

My three-day total at our home in Carlsbad is .27" bringing my year-to-date rainfall total to .52". At 6:38 PM MDT Friday hen eggs size hail (2.0" in diameter) was reported 8 miles northeast of Whites City southwest of Carlsbad. Golf ball size hail was reported 2 miles east-northeast of Halfway on the Hobbs Hwy at 5:49 PM MDT.
