Plumas County in northern California...
Mono County in northern California...
Alpine County in northern California...
El Dorado County in northern California...
Placer County in central California...
Sierra County in northern California...
Nevada County in northern California...
southern Washoe County in western Nevada...
Douglas County in western Nevada...

* periods of rapid snow melt are likely to continue through the
Memorial Day weekend. This will lead to high flows and minor
flooding near unregulated creeks and streams leading out of the
Sierra.

* The greatest risk for flooding will occur through Thursday morning
and again over the Memorial Day weekend from Saturday to Tuesday
may 30th.

* Daily peak flows on small creeks and streams typically occur
during the evening and overnight hours.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Creeks and streams will run fast and very cold, bringing the risk of
hypothermia for those without protective gear. Those with plans to
Camp in the Sierra over the Memorial Day weekend should be prepared
to quickly leave Creek Side campsites. Hikers will want to be
cautious while trying to cross creeks and streams.

... 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.
