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.
