Episode Narrative An upper level trough spread abundant subtropical moisture into much of southern New Mexico. Since snow levels were high (above 8000 feet), the result was up to two inches of rain on an existing snowpack. The excessive runoff due to heavy rain and snowmelt led to the flooding of streams feeding into the Gila River.
Event Narrative Heavy rain (2 inches) on a snowpack led to a flood wave which badly damaged highway bridges south of Gila Hot Springs. Highway 15 was impassable for several hours.
