Local 24-Hour Rainfall Totals.

Yesterday afternoon thunderstorms produced localized heavy rainfall. The heaviest rainfall fell just north of Red Bluff Reservoir on the New Mexico/Texas State Line southeast of Carlsbad. Estimates as high as 5" may have fallen. 

Another pocket of heavy rainfall fell 20 miles east of Carlsbad just northwest of the WIPP Site. Both of these totals noted above may be a little high since radar indicated that the thunderstorms that produced this heavy rainfall also were producing hail. Hail tends to exaggerate the estimated rainfall totals in a storm.

A second complex/line of thunderstorms developed north of Roswell after sunset and moved south and southwest into the Pecos Valley before midnight. The heaviest estimated rainfall was noted just north of Dexter and southwest of Bottomless Lakes State Park where 2.50" may have fallen. A public report of 1.60" was posted on Facebook from Dexter. A Personal Weather Station (PWS - Grimmie) just north of Dexter measured 1.53".

A Roswell CoCoRaHS Station located 0.3 miles south-southwest recorded .99". An Artesia CoCoRaHS Station located 3.5 miles north-northeast recorded .92". The Roswell Airport ASOS measured .87". 

Monday afternoon a strong thunderstorm dumped 1.47" of rain at the Weed Personal Weather Station (PWS - Dark Ridge Observatory).
