The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
  Snowmelt in...
  Douglas County in western Nevada...
  Southern Lyon County in west central Nevada...

* Until 315 PM PDT Thursday

* Flows will increase along the East Walker River due to increased
  releases from Bridgeport Reservoir over the next few days. These
  releases are required to create space for increased snowmelt
  runoff into the reservoir. This increase in flow will likely lead
  to minor flooding along the East Walker River, especially the
  lower reaches from the area of Strosnider Ditch to the confluence.

* On the West Walker River, elevated flows will continue through the
  weekend, but these flows will decrease early next week as
  temperatures cool back to near normal. Minor flooding in the lower
  parts of Antelope Valley is expected to continue through early
  next week. High flows will also continue through Wilson Canyon.

* If reservoir operations are changed on Topaz Lake next week and
  less water is diverted into the lake, there is a possibility that
  flows will increase down the main channel of the West Walker
  River. This could lead to more extensive flooding from the
  Antelope Valley downstream through Smith Valley and Wilson Canyon.
  If flows increase we will likely need to upgrade the advisory to a
  warning.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
