Flood Watch / Flood Statement
Issued: 3:18 AM PST Feb. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch is cancelled...

The Flood Watch for portions of east central California and
western Nevada has been cancelled. Widespread heavy rain below
6500 feet has ended over the region, but showers will persist
through the day. Snow showers above 5500 feet will limit the
possibility for low lying and poor drainage flooding around Lake
Tahoe and in Mono County.

Flooding of low lands along some small streams in the Reno area,
Washoe Valley, Carson City and the Carson Valley may persist
through the day due to run off from yesterday's rain. This area is
currently under a Flood Warning. Any additional rain showers
today may cause brief periods of standing water on roads, but
additional flooding beyond that already occurring is not expected.
