I ended up on the Windy Point Vista (9,951’ above sea level) just east of Ski Apache and Sierra Blanca Peak in the Sacramento mountains of south-central New Mexico. Thunderstorms were developing to my east so I set up my Gopro HERO11 Black camera on the tripod and the rest is history. A scud cloud briefly developed beneath the base of the thunderstorm. This was not a funnel cloud or tropical funnel cloud nor a tornado. The thunderstorm it formed underneath of was not a supercell thunderstorm and a wall cloud never developed.

TS Harold Remnant Moisture - 72-Hour Rainfall Summary

Image
72-Hour Rainfall Summary. Remnant moisture from former Tropical Storm Harold brought the summers most widespread heavy rainfall to the southern Sacramento mountains. Lesser totals fell across the southern half of the state yesterday. The far eastern and southeastern plains missed out. I added the Multisensor radar 24-hour rainfall totals. It's very easy to see the rainfall left behind as the remnant tropical moisture streamed northwest from the Gulf of Mexico. Please feel free to add your rainfall totals in the comments and be sure and tell the general location of where you measured the rainfall. Early reports of some of the heaviest rainfall 3-day totals (most of this fell yesterday) reported so far this morning (as of 7:30 AM) include: PWS Pierce Canyon S of Cloudcroft 3.78" PWS W of Sacramento 3.86" PWS In Cloudcroft 3.73" Dog Canyon Raws (Guadalupe Mtns) 3.54" PWS Russia Canyon 3.41" PWS NW of Mountain Park 3.34" Cloudcroft CoCoRaHS Station 0.4 ESE
