The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of California and Nevada,
including the following areas, in California, Greater Lake
Tahoe Area, Lassen-Eastern Plumas-Eastern Sierra Counties,
Mono County, and Surprise Valley California. In Nevada,
Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Greater Reno-Carson City-Minden Area,
Mineral and Southern Lyon Counties, Northern Washoe County,
and Western Nevada Basin and Range including Pyramid Lake.

* From 2 PM PDT this afternoon through this evening

* Monsoonal moisture is streaming over northeast California and
western to west-central Nevada. Storms today will be capable of
producing localized, very heavy rainfall with the potential for
flash flooding and debris flows.

* Steep terrain and recently burned areas from wildfires will be
especially susceptible to flash flooding and debris flows.


People in the watch area should continue to be aware of the
possibility for heavy rainfall, avoid low lying areas, and be
careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses. Do not
drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road. The
road may be washed out or the water depth may be too great to
allow your car to cross safely.

Tenaya Lake outlet yesterday around 6PM. The water was just over waist deep for me (5'7" ). I was preparing to carry my 11-year old daughter on my shoulders when a good samaritan (Ray) showed up with his inflatable kayak and offered to ferry her (and several others) across. smileys with beer
