    HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RENO NV
    345 PM PST WED DEC 15 2010

    …HEAVY PRECIPITATION LIKELY…WITH FLOODING POSSIBLE…FROM
    THE SOUTHERN CASCADES SOUTH TO THE CENTRAL SIERRA IN NORTHERN AND
    CENTRAL CALIFORNIA…AND IN FAR WESTERN NEVADA…FRIDAY THROUGH
    NEXT WEDNESDAY…

    HEAVY PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN FRIDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH NEXT
    WEDNESDAY FROM THE SOUTHERN CASCADES TO THE SOUTHERN SIERRA…AND
    IN FAR WESTERN NEVADA. THE TIMING OF THE PRECIPITATION…LOCATION
    OF THE HEAVIEST AMOUNTS…AND SNOW LEVELS ARE UNCERTAIN AT THIS
    TIME. HOWEVER…

    1. HEAVY PRECIPITATION IN THIS AREA IS ALMOST CERTAIN…
    2. SNOW LEVELS COULD BE AS HIGH AS 7500 TO 9000 FEET DURING THE
    HEAVY PRECIPITATION…ESPECIALLY ON SATURDAY AND EARLY NEXT
    WEEK IN THE SIERRA…AND AROUND 6000 FEET NEAR THE OREGON
    BORDER.
    3. SOILS ARE SATURATED DUE TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION
    SINCE OCTOBER AND 4. SIGNIFICANT SNOW PACK EXISTS ABOVE ABOUT
    5000 FEET IN THE SOUTHERN CASCADES AND 7500 FEET IN THE CENTRAL
    SIERRA.

    SO…THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING THROUGHOUT THE REGION FRIDAY
    THROUGH NEXT WEDNESDAY. SPECIFIC LOCATION…TIMING AND SEVERITY
    OF ANY FLOODING WHICH MAY OCCUR DUE TO THESE STORMS IS UNKNOWN AT
    THIS TIME.

    URBAN AREAS AND UNCONTROLLED RIVERS AND STREAMS HAVE THE HIGHEST
    LIKELIHOOD OF FLOODING SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. HIGHLY
    CONTROLLED RIVERS AND STREAMS…LIKE THE TRUCKEE RIVER…HAVE A
    LOWER LIKELIHOOD OF FLOODING DUE TO SIGNIFICANT RESERVOIR STORAGE
    SPACE AVAILABLE. HIGHER SNOW LEVELS COULD RESULT IN MORE SERIOUS
    FLOODING.

    WHILE THERE IS UNCERTAINTY REGARDING THE IMPACT OF RAINFALL FROM
    THIS UPCOMING EVENT…ANYONE WITH INTERESTS ALONG AND NEAR RIVERS
    OR CREEKS SHOULD TAKE PRELIMINARY STEPS TO MITIGATE DAMAGE IF
    FLOODING OCCURS. THIS INCLUDES…CLEANING LEAVES AND OTHER DEBRIS
    FROM STORM DRAINS AND GUTTERS…AND KEEPING AWARE OF THE LATEST
    FORECASTS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

    SNOWFALL ABOVE THE RAIN/SNOW LINE WILL BE EXTREMELY HEAVY DURING
    THESE STORMS…AND UP TO TEN FEET OF HEAVY WET SNOW COULD FALL AT
    THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS ABOVE 7000 FEET.

    CURRENT STAGE…FLOW AND RIVER FORECAST INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FOR
    MANY RIVERS AND STREAMS IN EASTERN CALIFORNIA AND WESTERN NEVADA ON
    THE INTERNET AT WATER.WEATHER.GOV/AHPS2 AND CLICKING ON THE AREA OF
    INTEREST. CURRENT RIVER STAGE AND FLOW DATA IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM
    USGS IN CARSON CITY AT WATERDATA.USGS.GOV/NV/NWIS/RT AND CLICKING ON
    STREAMFLOW TABLE.
