Message summary: ...snowmelt flooding concerns increase over the eastern sierra and western nevada...
With temperatures rising well above normal through wednesday, snowmelt will accelerate across the eastern sierra. The increase in snowmelt will cause daily rises in many small streams from mono county north through the northern sierra. Snowmelt flow typically peaks in smaller streams late in the evening or overnight. Farther downstream flows will continue to increase through next week as the smaller streams add water to the main rivers. Small streams, and walker, carson, and truckee river flooding summary:
* on the west walker river, minor flooding is expected from the walker river canyon into antelope valley and high flows through smith valley and downstream through wilson canyon. There is minor flooding occurring just below wilson canyon.
* on the east walker river, minor flooding is ongoing and expected to continue from just above strosnider ditch to the confluence with the west walker.
* the walker river through mason valley and yerington is expected to crest just below moderate flood stage. Minor flood stage will be reached wednesday morning and flow will peak out late friday.
* no flooding is expected below weber reservoir at this time.
* small streams draining the eastern sierra could see flows in excess of 2 to 3 times their current flows causing flooding near the streams from southern mono county north through the tahoe basin and into parts of sierra and plumas counties.
* the upper parts of the carson river...including the southwest carson valley...are likely to experience minor flooding of farm and ranch lands.
* the truckee river will likely see minor flooding below lake tahoe to truckee along highway 89 and nearby areas. This is likely to be confined to areas immediately adjacent to the river with impacts confined to campgrounds and bike trails.
