Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 8:16 PM PDT May. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The flood advisory for snowmelt remains in effect until 330 PM PDT
Tuesday for northern Mono... Douglas and southern Lyon counties...

* the west Walker River will continue to have high flows through the
coming week and may approach flood stage by late Friday.

* Warming temperatures will continue producing increased snowmelt,
creating high flows in area streams and rivers through Tuesday.
Temperatures will cool slightly Wednesday before warming to well
above normal again later in the week. The return to well above
normal temperatures late in the week is likely to create another
round of minor flooding along the west Walker River and exacerbate
already existing minor flooding in Antelope Valley and the
southern end of the Mason Valley.

* 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 very high water through Smith Valley and
Wilson Canyon.

* Along the east Walker River minor flooding is expected to continue
from above strosnider ditch to the confluence with the west Walker
River.

808 PM PDT Mon may 29 2017

The National Weather Service in Reno has extended the

* small stream flood advisory for...
snowmelt in...
Plumas County in northern California...
Mono County in northern California...
Alpine County in northern California...
El Dorado County in northern California...
Placer County in central California...
Sierra County in northern California...
Nevada County in northern California...
southern Washoe County in western Nevada...
Douglas County in western Nevada...
western Carson City in western Nevada...

* until 830 PM PDT Wednesday

* one more day of well above normal temperatures Tuesday will result
in continued high flows and minor flooding near unregulated creeks
and streams leading out of the Sierra.

* High temperatures will drop to near normal Wednesday. This should
reduce flows and ease any minor flooding concerns through at least
midday Thursday. Temperatures will begin to rebound late this week
and climb well above normal again by the weekend, resulting in
renewed high flows and minor flooding potential.

* Daily peak flows on small creeks and streams typically occur
during the evening and overnight hours.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Creeks and streams will run fast and very cold, bringing the risk of
hypothermia for those without protective gear.
