...MINOR RISES ARE POSSIBLE ON LOWER ELEVATION STREAMS AND
RIVERS...

* IMPACTS...Minor rises are possible on area streams and rivers.
  Flooding is not anticipated, however areas of poor drainage may
  see minor impacts.

* CONFIDENCE...Moderate

* WHAT...Minor rises are possible on lower elevation streams and
  rivers due to rainfall and snowmelt.

* WHERE...Lower elevations of Catron County, mainly along the San
  Francisco and Gila River Valleys. This includes portions of
  Deep, Mineral, and Whitewater Creeks as well as tributaries of
  the Gila River.

* WHEN...Rainfall is expected to begin Saturday night and continue
  through late Sunday night. Rises in streams and rivers are
  likely to begin midday Sunday and crest early Monday morning
  before receding through the day Monday.

* SUMMARY...A storm system moving through the Southwest will bring
  warm Pacific moisture into the region producing moderate amounts
  of rainfall over portions of southwest New Mexico. This rain,
  combined with snowmelt in the lower to mid elevations will
  produce minor rises on area streams and rivers. At this time
  flooding is not expected, however areas of poor drainage may
  see minor impacts.
