950 PM MDT Mon Apr 22 2019

CORRECTED SNOW LEVEL

...HEAVY WET SNOWFALL EXPECTED FOR HIGH ELEVATIONS OF THE SANGRE
DE CRISTO AND TUSAS MOUNTAINS TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING...

.A low pressure system west of New Mexico will spread copious
amounts of lift and moisture into the state. Meanwhile, a cold
front has dropped into central and eastern New Mexico and will
create a persistent upslope flow over the Sangre de Cristo and
Tusas Mountains. This will lead to numerous showers and perhaps a
few thunderstorms. While snow levels will be quite high, a foot or
more of heavy, wet snow is expected above 9,000 feet.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms with high elevation snow will develop
across the mountains this afternoon and continue through tonight.
The heaviest snow will fall across the crest of the Sangre De Cristo
and Wet Mountains above 10000 feet with some light to moderate
accumulations along the eastern slopes of the San Juan Mountains
tonight. Snowfall totals of 8 to 16 inches will be possible across
the crest of the southern Sangre De Cristo Mountains with 5 to 10
inches possible above 10000 feet in the Wets and northern Sangre
De Cristo Mountains. The remainder of the mountains will see
around 1 to 6 inches with some local amounts of up to 8 inches
possible across the southern and eastern slopes of the eastern San
Juan Mountains. Snow levels will drop to around 7500 to 8000 feet
tonight but most accumulations will be limited to around 9000
feet and above. The San Luis Valley will see mainly rain but could
see a brief mix or switch over to snow down to 7500 to 8000 feet
towards morning. Only some slushy accumulations of up to an inch
will be possible on grassy surfaces at times.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon
across the mountains and valleys.  The main risks with thunderstorms
will be lightning, small hail up to 1/2 inch in diameter, and some
brief moderate to heavy rainfall.  There is a low potential for
localized flash flooding or enhanced runoff on the lower elevations
of the Spring, Junkins and Hayden Pass burn scars this afternoon and
evening should rainfall become heavy enough before snow levels drop
later this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

An additional one to six inches of snow is anticipated Tuesday,
especially during the morning over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains

generally favoring higher terrain locations, will be capable of

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible over the mountains and valleys this afternoon through

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of northern and
central New Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The combination of a cold front entering New Mexico from the
northeast and an upper level low pressure system approaching from the
west will create hazardous weather for central to eastern portions of
the state today and tonight.

Snow is expected to develop over the northern mountains of the state
today and tonight with the high peaks of the Sangre de Cristo
mountains observing the heaviest accumulations. Elevations above
10,000 feet are expected to receive several inches to upwards of a
foot and a half of heavy, wet snow.

While snow falls at the high elevations above 10,000 feet, areas just
beneath these levels will likely observe rain that could fall on
existing mountain snowpack. This could lead to a rapid melting of
remnant snow which will quickly turn to runoff and pose a risk of
flooding along the east slopes of the Sangre de Cristos.

Unstable conditions are expected to develop along the leading edge of
the cold front in east central to southeastern New Mexico late this
afternoon and into the evening. This could lead to strong to severe
thunderstorms with heavy downpours, large hail, and damaging winds
possible.

Strong winds will accelerate through gaps and canyons within the
central mountain chain late today and tonight. Some localized areas
may observe occasional wind gusts as high as 35 to 45 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow will continue to accumulate in the northern mountains Tuesday,
decreasing in coverage and intensity into Tuesday night and
Wednesday. The high peaks of the Sangre de Cristos will observe the
highest snow totals through this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are encouraged to report any snowfall, flooding, or other
severe weather through the National Weather Service Albuquerque web
site at weather.gov/abq or by calling 1.888.386.7637. You can also

Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
344 PM MDT Fri Apr 19 2019

...Rises on mid to lower elevation rivers and creeks possible through
this weekend...

Above normal temperatures, especially temperatures staying above
freezing at night, have allowed the snowpack at mid elevations to
melt at an accelerated rate.

At this time, rivers across eastern Utah and western Colorado are
not forecast to reach flood stage but rather just approach or
reach bankfull conditions.

Increases in river stages lead to much higher river flows making
for swift and unpredictable currents. Debris in the water could
create numerous snags. Water temperatures will be quite cold with
the introduction of the snowmelt.

If recreating or working in or near high flow waterways, use
appropriate safety gear. Unstable banks along fast moving
waterways may quickly give way and should be avoided.
