...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.
