The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Nevada, north central Nevada, northeast Nevada,
  northwest Nevada, and south central Nevada, including the
  following areas, in Nevada, Ruby Mountains/East Humboldt Range
  and White Pine County. In north central Nevada, Northern
  Lander County and Northern Eureka County and Southern Lander
  County and Southern Eureka County. In northeast Nevada,
  Northern Elko County, South Central Elko County, Southeastern
  Elko County, and Southwestern Elko County. In northwest
  Nevada, Humboldt County. In south central Nevada, Northeastern
  Nye County and Northwestern Nye County.

* Until 11 PM PDT this evening

* Subtropical moisture will continue to reside over northern and
  central Nevada this evening. Resultant very heavy rainfall will
  create an environment supportive of flash flooding during the
  evening hours.

* Areas most prone to flash flooding include small creeks and
  streams in and near the higher terrain, wildfire burn scars,
  and normally dry washes. Rock slides and debris/water flows
  over roadways are possible. Low lying areas, where some roads
  are, will be susceptible to flooding as well.


A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
