Local Weather History For July 12th...
2006: After the previous two days saw damaging thunderstorm winds over portions of the South Plains and Rolling Plains,
damaging convective winds once again struck portions of the South Plains late this day. Specifically, a complex of strong
thunderstorms propagated southeastward over the southwestern South Plains region of West Texas during the late afternoon
and early evening hours. Strong outflow near these storms initially produced severe winds at Ropesville in southeastern
Hockley County, as estimated by a Texas Tech University West Texas Mesonet meteorologist. However, the outflow boundary
quickly lofted extensive dirt from drought-strickened fields and evolved into a classic haboob (i.e. dust storm) and raced
eastward over a five county area south of Lubbock. Wind gusts associated with the haboob reached severe levels at a number
of Texas Tech University West Texas Mesonet sites. The mesonet observation site near Wolfforth in southwestern Lubbock
County recorded a gust to 71 mph. Radar, visual, and photographic observations suggested that the haboob became well
separated from the parent convection. Local farmers and agricultural officials reported that while damage to cotton crops
was extensive, it was notably less than that caused by the devastating haboob of June 22, 2006. This was attributed to the
mature cotton plants in mid July that were resilient to the impact of wind-driven dust. Nonetheless, damage to the already
drought-stricken cotton industry totaled at least $750,000 with more than 7,000 acres lost.
