  inches per hour are possible in this band below 5000 to 5500 feet.

  That will also add to the potential for flooding.

* Current flooding will be slow to ease, making this additional
  rainfall add to the ongoing flooding...especially in low lying
  areas near small streams. The lower portions of recent burn scars
  are at risk as well.

  Reno, Sparks, Stead, Wingfield Springs, Damonte Ranch, Northwest
  Reno, Spanish Springs, Pleasant Valley, Lemmon Valley, Golden
  Valley, Hidden Valley, Sutcliffe, and Mogul.


Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.
