Severe Weather in the East June 18, 19 and 21

 
Deep moisture to the east of a dry line across the eastern plains of New Mexico fueled the development of thunderstorms for several days during the second half of the month. The most active days were the 18th and 19th when isolated severe storms produced large hail in the northeast and east central areas. The 20th and 21st were less active but large hail found its way to the ground south of Broadview on the 21st. The three radar images below show the storms responsible for golf ball size hail near Sedan on the 18th, baseball size hail near Tucumcari on the 19th, and ping pong size hail near Broadview on the 21st.
