Another Round Of Severe T-Storms Today Into This Evening.






Round two of scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms is in our local forecast once again today. Like yesterday a few multicellular clusters will form as storms first fire over the east slopes of the Guadalupe, Sacramento,  and Capitan mountains. A few of these will become locally severe and produce damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph, isolated large hail...some maybe as big as golf balls, frequent deadly cloud to ground lightning, and locally heavy rainfall. 

Our chances of getting wet today range from 30% to 40% in the Sacramento mountains to 30% to 60% across the southeastern plains. 

A thunderstorm is classified as severe by the National Weather Service when it produces the following: thunderstorm wind gusts of 58 mph or higher, hail one inch in diameter (quarter size), and or a tornado.

Note: For some reason the automated rain gauge (Hads - TRDN5) at the Two Rivers dam 10 miles southwest of Roswell keeps reporting erroneous rainfall totals. This has been ongoing since last year. That 3.00" is not a valid report.

(As Of 8 AM MDT Wednesday, May 3, 2023).



A public report of .55" of rainfall was noted on my Facebook page yesterday afternoon on a farm near Hagerman, on Choctaw road.
