227 AM PDT TUE MAY 3 2016

...HIGH STREAM FLOWS THIS WEEK...

TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO WARM FOR THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS. RIVERS
CREEKS AND STREAMS ARE ALREADY RUNNING STRONG AND WITH WARMER
TEMPERATURES SOME SMALL MOUNTAIN STREAMS MAY EXCEED BANK-FULL
POSSIBLY CAUSING SOME MINOR FLOODING ISSUES. THE JARBIDGE RIVER
IS RESPONDING TO INCREASED SNOW MELT AND IS RISING HIGHER EACH
EVENING. IF TRAVELING IN THE BACK-COUNTRY THIS WEEK...BE AWARE
THAT SOME DIRT OR GRAVEL ROADWAYS MAY BECOME IMPASSABLE AT TIMES.

AS WATER FROM STREAMS MAKES ITS WAY INTO THE HUMBOLDT
RIVER...INCREASING FLOWS ARE EXPECTED ALONG THE HUMBOLDT RIVER
FROM PALISADE TO WINNEMUCCA. NO FLOODING IS FORECAST FOR THE
HUMBOLDT AT THIS TIME.
