The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a
* flood advisory for...
northern Mono County in northern California...
Douglas County in western Nevada...
southern Lyon County in west central Nevada...
* until 330 PM PDT Friday
* the west Walker River will approach and likely exceed minor flood
stage during the night between Tuesday and Thursday.
* Warming temperatures will produce increased snowmelt runoff and
high flows in area streams and rivers through late this week.
These increased flows will produce additional minor flooding along
the west Walker River and exacerbate already existing minor
flooding in Antelope Valley and the southern end of the Mason
Valley. The highest flows are likely in the evening and overnight
on the west Walker River.
* Flooding of pastures, rural roads and campgrounds is possible
through the west Walker River canyon. Additional flooding of
agricultural areas in Antelope Valley along the west Walker River
is likely along with high water through Smith Valley and Wilson
* Along the east Walker River minor flooding is expected to continue
from above strosnider ditch to the confluence with the west Walker

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday evening...
The Flood Watch continues for
* portions of California and western Nevada, including the
following areas, in California, greater Lake Tahoe area,
Lassen-eastern Plumas-eastern Sierra counties, and Mono
County. In western Nevada, greater Lake Tahoe area and greater
Reno-Carson City-Minden area.
* Through Wednesday evening
* warming temperatures will accelerate snowpack melt across the
eastern Sierra through early week. Best estimates for flows
this week coming out of unregulated eastern Sierra creeks and
streams are likely to be 2-2.5 times current flows with
smaller creeks likely to see 3 times current flows.
* Daily peak flows on small creeks and streams typically occur
during the evening and overnight hours.
Excessive runoff may also generate rock and mud slides in steep
terrain. 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.
