158 PM PDT SAT APR 30 2016

...HIGH STREAM FLOWS POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING SCATTERED VALLEY RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW
SHOWERS THIS EVENING FOLLOWED BY A WARMING TREND NEXT WEEK.
RIVERS CREEKS AND STREAMS ARE ALREADY RUNNING STRONG AND ANY
ADDITIONAL RAINFALL COMBINED WITH WARMER TEMPERATURES 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 WEEKEND...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.
