Areal Flood Watch, Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 3:30 PM PST on February 19, 2017

... Flood Watch remains in effect from late tonight through
Tuesday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of western Nevada, including the following area,
greater Reno-Carson City-Minden area.

* From late tonight through Tuesday morning

* a strong atmospheric river will bring heavy rain with high
snow levels Monday. 2 to 3 inches of rain is possible in the
Carson Range with 1 to 2 inches through most valley locations.
This will contribute to increasing flows on rivers and
streams, with an enhanced flood potential Monday into Tuesday
morning.

* The highest risk of flooding is along creeks, streams, and poor
drainage areas Monday into Tuesday morning. This includes creeks
and streams that drain the foothills and the Carson Range such
as Steamboat Creek, Dry Creek and Eagle Valley creek. Low lying
areas in both Washoe and Carson valleys could also see flooding
issues. The Truckee and Carson River are forecast to rise to
near monitor stage Monday night into Tuesday, but at this time
are expected to remain below flood stage.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Small creeks and streams are the most susceptible to flooding.
Excessive rainfall may also generate rock and mud slides in steep
terrain. Persons in the watch area should take time to clear any
blocked drains in anticipation of the heavy rain. Persons living
along small creeks and streams should monitor the latest weather
information at weather.Gov/Reno and be prepared to take action
should flooding occur.





959 PM PST Sat Feb 18 2017

The National Weather Service in Reno has extended the

* flood advisory for...
rain and snowmelt in...
south central Lyon County in west central Nevada...

* until 1030 PM PST Sunday

* at 957 PM PST, gauge reports and local water management officials
indicated that very minor flooding continues along the east Walker
River from just above strosnider ditch downstream to near the
confluence with the west Walker River. Most of the flooding will
be restricted to farm and ranch land near the river.

Minor flooding is also being reported downstream of Yerington near
Miller Lane from Highway 95a to aizzi Lane and aizzi Lane to pete
hendrichs Road.

This flooding will remain over mainly rural areas of south central
Lyon County.

This includes the following streams and drainages... east Walker
River and mainstem Walker River.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Residual runoff and necessary releases from Bridgeport Reservoir
continue to cause minor flooding near the east Walker River and
mainstem Walker River including farmland and low lying areas.

Wind Advisory
Statement as of 2:59 PM PST on February 19, 2017

... Wind Advisory in effect from 10 am Monday to 4 PM PST
Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Wind Advisory,
which is in effect from 10 am Monday to 4 PM PST Tuesday.

* Timing: winds will increase late Monday morning and continue
through Tuesday afternoon. Strongest winds will be Monday
afternoon through Tuesday morning.

* Winds: south to southwest winds 20 to 35 mph with gusts up to 55
mph. Wind prone areas gusting to near 70 mph.

* Impacts: plan for hazardous travel conditions for high profile
vehicles along Highway 395, Highway 50, and Interstate 580.
Strong turbulence and wind shear could impact aviation travel. A
few power outages are also possible in and near the foothills.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, Holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. The best thing to do
is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food and
water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or candles in
the event of a power outage.
