snowmelt remains in effect until 1130 am PST Tuesday for Plumas...
alpine... Sierra... southeastern Lassen... Storey... southern Washoe...
Douglas... and northern Lyon counties and Carson City...

At 427 am PST, the heavy rain has ended, but many small streams
continue to see high flows and are out of their banks. Also,
flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas should continue
through the morning. Showers will persist today and snow levels will
begin to fall. The falling snow levels and lack of widespread
moderate or greater rain will allow many areas with minor flooding
to see their flood waters slowly drain through the morning.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Reno, Carson City, Minden, Gardnerville, Virginia City, Dayton, the
Sierra Valley, and Washoe Valley

Nevada counties...

Interior northern California has experienced significant rainfall
and widespread flooding problems from prolonged rainfall. The entire
region has saturated soils resulting in widespread areas of standing
water, high stream flows and many flooded areas.

Continued runoff and high stream flows will stress levees leading to
bank erosion, boils and breaches.

Flooding has occurred in locations that have not experienced
flooding in many years.

Residents in interior northern California should be prepared for
flooding. Be prepared to evacuate if flooding should affect your
area. Gather a "go bag" with important items like medications and
hard to replace documents. Don't Forget to plan for your pets and
animals.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
