...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING... The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a * Flood Watch for portions of California and Nevada, including the following areas, in California, Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties, and Surprise Valley California. In Nevada, Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Greater Reno-Carson City-Minden Area, and Northern Washoe County. * Through this evening * Additional showers and thunderstorms are expected this morning and afternoon with locally heavy rainfall possible on already saturated soils. The heaviest rainfall looks likely in the Reno- Tahoe region this morning, transitioning into northeast California and northwest Nevada this afternoon. * Short bursts of high intensity rainfall could lead to additional debris and mudflows in areas of steep terrain, as has occurred the past couple of days. Areas near burn scars are also especially at risk. Minor street flooding remains possible in urban areas, especially if drainage is poor. Allow extra travel time and keep a greater distance between vehicles for the morning commute. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Excessive rainfall may generate rock and mud slides in steep terrain. Don't drive into high water or mud. You won't get out. &&
