Flood Advisory
National Weather Service Reno NV
838 AM PDT Tue Jun 18 2019

Mono CA-Alpine CA-Mineral NV-Douglas NV-Lyon NV-
838 AM PDT Tue Jun 18 2019

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
  Snowmelt in...
  Mono County in northern California...
  Alpine County in northern California...
  Northwestern Mineral County in western Nevada...
  Douglas County in western Nevada...
  Southern Lyon County in west central Nevada...

* Until 830 AM PDT Sunday.

* Due to warm temperatures, snowmelt flows into rivers and streams
  will remain high through much of this week. This will impact many
  Eastern Sierra streams in Mono and Alpine Counties, along the east
  and west forks of the Walker River plus the mainstem through
  Yerington to Weber Reservoir.

* While widespread or prolonged flooding is not anticipated anymore,
  periods of minor flooding are possible especially at night and
  early morning along creeks and streams. The highest flows are
  forecast pre-dawn Thursday morning, with a gradual drop in flows
  starting Friday as cooler weather moves into the region.

* Campers and hikers should be mindful of the high stream flows and
  exercise caution around the fast moving cold water. Some minor
  flooding of campgrounds near streams is possible especially
  overnight during peak flows, so try to camp away from the creeks
  to account for this possible rise in water levels. Some roads
  along these streams could be affected by minor flooding as well.
