...SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK...
...LOW FLOOD RISK THIS SPRING FOR NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO...

THE CURRENT SNOWPACK IN THE NORTHERN NEW MEXICO MOUNTAINS RANGES
FROM 26 PERCENT OF THE MEDIAN ON THE UPPER CANADIAN RIVER BASIN...38
PERCENT ON THE UPPER PECOS RIVER BASIN...41 PERCENT IN THE RIO
GRANDE BASIN TO 84 PERCENT OF THE MEDIAN IN THE SAN JUAN RIVER
BASIN. SNOW PACK IN THE CHUSKA MOUNTAINS IS 32 PERCENT OF THE
MEDIAN...WHILE SNOW PACK IN THE NORTHERN SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS AND IN
THE NORTHERN GILA MOUNTAINS OF SOUTHERN CATRON COUNTY IS FAR BELOW
NORMAL.

ANY SIGNIFICANT RIVER OR STREAM FLOODING THAT MIGHT OCCUR THIS
SPRING WOULD LIKELY ONLY BE THE RESULT OF A HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT
OCCURRING IN THE MOUNTAIN REGIONS WHILE SNOW MELT RUNOFF IS PEAKING.

THE NEW MEXICO WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR SPRING FAVORS ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES WHILE THERE ARE EQUAL CHANCES OF ABOVE NORMAL...NORMAL
OR BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR NEW MEXICO.
