Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:20 AM PST Feb. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Tuesday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

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

* Through Tuesday morning

* a strong atmospheric river will bring heavy rain with high snow
levels. 2 to 3 inches of rain are 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 through Tuesday morning.

* The highest risk of flooding is along creeks, streams, and poor
drainage areas today 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 rivers are forecast to rise to
near monitor stage tonight 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.





Wind Advisory
Issued: 12:13 PM PST Feb. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 4 PM PST Tuesday...

* timing: winds will increase this evening. The strongest winds
are expected late this evening through Tuesday morning.

* Winds: south to southwest increasing to 10 to 20 mph with gusts
to 40 mph this afternoon... then 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 60
mph this evening. Local gusts to 80 mph in wind prone areas
tonight and Tuesday morning.

* Wave heights on pyramid lake: 2 to 4 feet. Small boats,
kayaks and paddle boards will be prone to capsizing and
should remain off lake waters until conditions improve.

* Impacts: expect hazardous travel conditions for high profile
vehicles along Interstate 80 and 580, and highways 50 and
95. A few power outages are also possible. Strong turbulence
and wind shear could impact aviation travel.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Secure loose outdoor items such as patio furniture and trash cans.
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.
