Well I don't think your comments are unfounded certainly the shear profiles for strong to violent tornadic storms. I guess the CAPEs were lower in this region but there was rapid destabilisation lifting off that lid.
Has anyone come across radar for this event or know of an archived site. Might try the UCAR website - I'll check there.
Found a website that retrieves any form of data from the archives.
where's that web site, Jimmy ? look forward to being able to possibly getting data from previous large storms.
Also... looks like a new set of storms developing in Mexico and heading towards the NM and TX borders, on the radar.
I wonder where you are at the moment Jimmy ?
just looked at the SPC convective outlooks......SERN AZ EWD INTO SWRN TX...
SONORAN UPR LOW WILL BEGIN A SLOW EJECTION ENEWD TOWARD THE AZ/NM BORDER BY 12Z. SEVERAL SHORTWAVE TROUGHS WERE ROTATING AROUND THE LOW. ONE WAS MOVING INTO SERN AZ WITH AN UPSTREAM IMPULSE
APPROACHING THE SRN NM/SWRN TX INTERNATIONAL BORDER THIS AFTN. RELATIVELY STEEP LAPSE RATES ALOFT...DIFFERENTIAL HEATING ALONG THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND INJECTION OF MODEST LOW-LEVEL BOUNDARY LAYER
MOISTURE FROM THE PLAINS HAVE BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN TSTM DEVELOPMENT
maybe the place to be, .. there are other areas of convection along the the eastern edge of the rockies
overall the risk seens in SPC's view low risk of severe storms
