LEAD TO FLOODING ISSUES ALONG SMALL RIVERS CREEKS AND STREAMS IN
UPPER PORTIONS OF THE BRUNEAU AND JARBIDGE WATERSHEDS.

IF YOU HAVE PLANS TO UTILIZE BACKCOUNTRY ROADS NEAR THE NEVADA

...HIGH STREAM FLOWS POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING MORE VALLEY RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW TODAY
FOLLOWED BY A WARMING TREND NEXT WEEK. RIVERS CREEKS AND STREAMS
ARE ALREADY RUNNING STRONG AND ANY ADDITIONAL RAINFALL COMBINED
WITH WARMER TEMPERATURES MAY CAUSE SOME CREEKS RUNNING OFF THE
MOUNTAINS TO EXCEED BANK-FULL. LAMOILLE CREEK...MARTIN
CREEK...SALMON FALLS CREEK...AND THE BRUNEAU RIVER ARE FOUR SITES
THAT BEAR WATCHING AS THEY RESPOND MORE RAPIDLY TO EXCESSIVE SNOW-
MELT THIS TIME OF YEAR. THERE ARE ALSO NUMEROUS SMALL CHANNELS
ORIGINATING IN THE MOUNTAINS THAT MAY CAUSE FLOODING ISSUES OR
SOGGY ROADWAYS. IF TRAVELING IN THE BACK-COUNTRY THIS WEEKEND...BE
AWARE THAT SOME DIRT OR GRAVEL ROADWAYS MAY BECOME IMPASSABLE AT
TIMES.

AS WATER FROM STREAMS MAKES ITS WAY INTO THE HUMBOLDT
RIVER...THERE MAY ALSO BE SOME HIGH FLOWS EXPERIENCED ALONG THE
HUMBOLDT RIVER FROM BATTLE MOUNTAIN TO WINNEMUCCA IN EARLY MAY.
NO FLOODING IS FORECAST FOR THE HUMBOLDT AT THIS TIME.
