Flood Warning

Flood Statement
National Weather Service Reno NV
307 PM PDT Mon Jun 26 2017

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

  West Walker River Near Coleville affecting Mono County

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

  Walker River Near Mason affecting Lyon County

Temperatures returning to near normal and depleting snow contribution
area will decrease headwater flows slowly through this week in the upper
portions of the Walker River basin. This will result in slowly
decreasing flows along the West Fork of the Walker River.

Increased releases from Bridgeport Reservoir will maintain high flowson
the East Walker River.

As a result, flows into and below the Mason-Yerington area on the
mainstem Walker River will remain high through the week. This section
has likely reached peak levels, but additional rises are still possible
depending on efficiency of continued upstream flood plain attenuation,
reservoir management, and when the reservoirs fill. Based on the latest
river data, continued prolonged minor flooding is likely through
Mason/Yerington with moderate flooding below Yerington through the
Wabuska area.


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.
