...THE SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 415 PM PDT
FOR SOUTHERN WASHOE COUNTY...

At 239 PM PDT, radar is showing that most of the heavy rain and
thunderstorms have moved well north of Wadsworth. Estimates of over
2 inches rainfall northwest of Wadsworth from earlier storms. Runoff
and high flows in normally dry washes west of Highway 447 remain
likely through 4 PM. This amount of rainfall in such a short
duration was highly unusual.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.
