* Warming temperatures will accelerate snowpack melt across the
  eastern Sierra through early week. Best estimates for flows
  this week coming out of unregulated eastern Sierra creeks and
  streams are likely to be 2-2.5 times current flows with
  smaller creeks likely to see 3 times current flows.

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


Excessive runoff may also generate rock and mud slides in steep
terrain. 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.
