...THE FLOOD ADVISORY FOR SNOWMELT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 145 PM PDT
THURSDAY FOR ALPINE AND DOUGLAS COUNTIES...

* Minor flooding impacts will begin in parts of the Carson Valley
  late Tuesday and continue through Thursday.

* Warming temperatures will cause increased snowmelt this week. This
  increased snowmelt will raise flows in both the East Fork Carson
  and West Fork Carson rivers.

* The increased flows will result in minor flooding along portions
  of the West Fork Carson below Woodfords and into the Carson
  Valley. This flooding will be confined mainly to farm and ranch
  lands near the river, but a few rural roads could be impacted.

* Flows are likely to be highest during the overnight hours before
  falling during the morning.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
  Snowmelt in...
  Placer County in central California...
  Nevada County in northern California...

* Until 1130 AM PDT Tuesday

* High flows will return to the upper portions of the Truckee River
  from Tahoe City downstream to the confluence with the Little
  Truckee River below Boca Reservoir. These increased flows are a
  combination of increased releases from Lake Tahoe and expected
  increased snowmelt due to higher temperatures this weekend and
  early next week.

* These high flows are likely to last into the Memorial Day weekend.
  Higher flows are likely farther downstream by the middle of next
  week, and the advisory will likely need to be extended into the
  Reno-Sparks area by Monday or Tuesday of next week.

* Impacts...Minor flooding will cover sections of the bike path
  along Highway 89. Some backyards and basements along the river
  near Highway 89 may be inundated by the high flows. Campgrounds
  along Highway 89 may be impacted by these higher flows as well.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
