226 PM PDT FRI APR 29 2016

...HIGH STREAM FLOWS POSSIBLE THROUGH NEXT WEEK...

A COUPLE STORM SYSTEMS WILL BRING MORE VALLEY RAIN AND MOUNTAIN
SNOW THIS EVENING...THEN AGAIN OVER THE WEEKEND. RIVERS CREEKS
AND STREAMS ARE ALREADY RUNNING STRONG AND THE EXTRA RAINFALL MAY
CAUSE SOME CREEKS RUNNING OFF THE MOUNTAINS TO EXCEED BANK-FULL.
LAMOILLE CREEK...MARTIN CREEK...SALMON FALLS CREEK...AND THE
BRUNEAU RIVER ARE FOUR SITES THAT BEAR WATCHING AS THEY RESPOND
MORE RAPIDLY TO EXCESSIVE SNOW-MELT THIS TIME OF YEAR. THERE ARE
ALSO NUMEROUS SMALL CHANNELS ORIGINATING IN THE MOUNTAINS THAT MAY
CAUSE FLOODING ISSUES OR SOGGY ROADWAYS. IF TRAVELING IN THE BACK-
COUNTRY THIS WEEK OR EARLY NEXT WEEK...BE AWARE THAT SOME DIRT OR
GRAVEL ROADWAYS MAY BECOME IMPASSABLE AT TIMES.

AS WATER FROM STREAMS MAKES ITS WAY INTO THE HUMBOLDT
RIVER...THERE MAY ALSO BE SOME HIGH FLOWS EXPERIENCED ALONG THE
HUMBOLDT RIVER FROM BATTLE MOUNTAIN TO WINNEMUCCA IN EARLY MAY.
NO FLOODING IS FORECAST FOR THE HUMBOLDT AT THIS TIME.

RUN HIGH DUE TO RECENT RAINFALL AND SNOWMELT. IN PARTICULAR...CREEKS

RIVER WATERSHEDS ARE EXPERIENCING HIGH FLOWS.

UNSETTLED WEATHER IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK WHICH

COMBINED WITH RUNOFF FROM HIGH ELEVATION SNOWMELT MAY CAUSE MINOR
FLOODING ALONG SOME WATERWAYS...PARTICULARLY IN THE THREE CREEK
AND MURPHY HOT SPRINGS AREAS...AND OTHER LOCATIONS NEAR THE NEVADA
BORDER. A WARMING TREND WILL OCCUR EARLY NEXT WEEK WHICH WILL
INCREASE SNOWMELT.

IF YOU HAVE PLANS TO TRAVEL IN THESE AREAS OR UTILIZE BACKCOUNTRY

IMPASSABLE AT TIMES AND QUITE MUDDY.
