Local Weather History For May 23rd...
2013: Driven by outflow from a complex of thunderstorms in Oklahoma early this morning, a frontal boundary settled into
the northeast South Plains and northern Rolling Plains by noon ahead of very moist easterly winds. Although a weak upper
ridge was in place over West Texas, a subtropical jet streak flowing over the region assisted in severe thunderstorm
development. Strong instability combined with upslope winds and the frontal boundary supported a large supercell storm
early this afternoon in central Floyd County. This massive storm was stationary for almost 30 minutes before crawling
southward accompanied by three landspout tornadoes (all rated EF-0), golf ball size hail, and heavy rain. Once this
supercell collapsed near Cone, a haboob raced south and west into Hale, Lubbock and Crosby Counties. Winds in this dust
storm were measured up to 77 mph in Crosbyton where minor damage to trees and structures was reported. Thereafter, a
second supercell storm developed to the east in central Dickens County which also proceeded to move south. While east of
Spur, this supercell produced an EF-1 tornado over ranch land that damaged some trees. As this storms mesocyclone
continued southward
