...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in Nevada...

  Walker River Near Mason affecting Lyon County

Warm temperatures in the high Sierra will produce increased snowmelt
in the upper part of the Walker River basin into next week. This
increased runoff will create high flows in the Walker River basin
from above the confluence of the East and West Walker Rivers
downstream through the Mason Valley and Yerington area to Weber
Reservoir. High flows are likely to last into June.

The forecast for the Mason-Yerington area is changing each day due
to changes in the snowpack and forecast temperatures and more
precise management of both Bridgeport Reservoir and Topaz Lake.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

These river forecasts are based on forecast rainfall and temperature
conditions at time of issuance. If actual conditions vary from these
forecasts...river conditions will vary accordingly. River forecasts
include current and planned reservoir releases.
