Yesterday I had an encounter with a supercell thunderstorm in SE New Mexico west of Roswell. This Supercell formed in a pretty meager environment, but it really got its act together as it moved out onto the Plains. A left-split interacted with this supercell, resulting in a short-term favorable storm interaction and a possible tornado. Shortly after this interaction, the supercell was ingesting cold, outflow air from the left-spit and died.
Solid Day of Photos
Overall the supercell aspect of the day went almost as good as could be expected. I had committed to going back to Albuquerque and decided against going south for more LP supercells (not sure if this was a good or bad decision still) and I ended up shooting some cool scenes across C NM into the dusk hour. I’ll certainly share those at some point soon!
