Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 11:45 AM PDT on May 18, 2017

Expires 2:30 PM EDT on May 23, 2017


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.
