Mosquero Gust Front

Quaint and quirky, the friendly old High Plains burg of Mosquero, NM, temporarily hosted a supercell on this tumultuous late-spring afternoon, a storm that had sported a classical wall cloud and mesocyclone region shortly before the outflow-dominant phase seen here entering town.  A profuse, vegetation-shredding hail dump soon would follow, leaving eerie scenes in its wake rather uncharacteristic of the region’s climatological dryness.
