...HIGH STREAM FLOWS THIS WEEK...

THERE WILL BE A WARMING TREND THIS WEEK. RIVERS CREEKS AND
STREAMS ARE ALREADY RUNNING STRONG AND WITH WARMER TEMPERATURES
SOME MOUNTAIN STREAMS MAY EXCEED BANK-FULL. NUMEROUS SMALL
STREAMS ORIGINATING IN THE MOUNTAINS MAY CAUSE FLOODING ISSUES OR
CREATE SOGGY ROADWAYS. IN ADDITION...LAMOILLE CREEK...MARTIN
CREEK...SALMON FALLS CREEK...AND THE BRUNEAU RIVER ARE FOUR SITES
THAT RESPOND RAPIDLY TO EXCESSIVE SNOW-MELT THIS TIME OF YEAR. 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...HIGH FLOWS ARE EXPECTED ALONG THE HUMBOLDT RIVER FROM
PALISADE TO WINNEMUCCA. NO FLOODING IS FORECAST FOR THE HUMBOLDT
AT THIS TIME.
