Started today with a small MRGL Risk for severe hail and gusty winds coming off the mountains in South Central New Mexico.

We lunched in Hobbs, NM, crossing the time zone again to make it -7, and then stopped in Roswell, NM for a couple of hours.

About 5pm we rolled West from Roswell, for some storms that started to fire up on the mountains, but they were taking their time to come off the mountains, so left them for a bit longer and went back for an early dinner in Roswell.

While sat in Applebees, the storm to the NW that was heading for Roswell, went severe, and a radar coverage hole meant we couldn't see it fully on radar.

Ended the day with a quick shot at some lightning, before it caught us and we were forced to take cover from the dust and rain.

Ended back in Seminole, TX again about midnight, and the storm then caught us a couple of hours later, giving us a stunning 1.30am marginally severe storm right over the hotel with anvil crawlers and C-G's.

Not at all bad for a Marginal Risk day!
