Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 3:37 PM PDT on June 23, 2017

Expires 6:15 PM EDT on June 29, 2017


The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* flood advisory for...
snowmelt in...
Douglas County in western Nevada...
southern Lyon County in west central Nevada...

* until 315 PM PDT Thursday

* flows will increase along the east Walker River due to increased
releases from Bridgeport Reservoir over the next few days. These
releases are required to create space for increased snowmelt
runoff into the Reservoir. This increase in flow will likely lead
to minor flooding along the east Walker River, especially the
lower reaches from the area of strosnider ditch to the confluence.

* On the west Walker River, elevated flows will continue through the
weekend, but these flows will decrease early next week as
temperatures cool back to near normal. Minor flooding in the lower
parts of Antelope Valley is expected to continue through early
next week. High flows will also continue through Wilson Canyon.

* If Reservoir operations are changed on Topaz Lake next week and
less water is diverted into the lake, there is a possibility that
flows will increase down the Main Channel of the west Walker
River. This could lead to more extensive flooding from the
Antelope Valley downstream through Smith Valley and Wilson Canyon.
If flows increase we will likely need to upgrade the advisory to a
warning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A flood advisory means river or stream flows are elevated.

Special Statement

Statement as of 4:23 PM PDT on June 23, 2017

Expires 8:45 PM EDT on June 23, 2017


... Isolated thunderstorms developing east of the Sierra
this afternoon...

Moderate to locally strong thunderstorms will continue developing
along and east of the Sierra late this afternoon into the early
evening hours. Most of the storms will be confined to area between
Mono Lake and Woodfords, but a few may develop east into parts of
western Mineral County, southern Lyon County, and southern Douglas
County.

The strongest storms may produce small hail and gusty winds to near
45 mph. The slow movement of the storms will result in brief
moderate to heavy downpours as well. In steeper terrain, the
moderate to heavy rain could cause minor rock slides.

These storms will have small rain cores, so any areas outside of the
cores are susceptible to dry lightning strikes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

During a thunderstorm, seek shelter inside a sturdy structure and
stay away from windows. Hikers and campers should seek shelter in a
vehicle if possible.
