Flood watch for western Nevada
Greater Reno-Carson City-Minden Area-
Including the cities of Sparks, Gardnerville, and Virginia City
420 AM PST Mon Feb 20 2017
…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.
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.
