Episode Narrative Strong warm air advection developed across western New Mexico late on the 21st into the early morning hours of the 22nd. This caused snow to turn to rain, and more than 2 inches of rain fell across the Gila Wilderness. The heavy rain, combined with some snowmelt, resulted in flooding near the Gila Cliff Dwellings.
Event Narrative Over 2 inches of rain combined with some snow melt resulted in flooding along State Highway 15. The approach to the West Fork Bridge was washed out when the West Fork of the Gila River rose out of its banks. State Highway 15 was closed between the Gila Cliff Dwellings Visitor Center and the trail head for the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.
