The return of much warmer weather today through Wednesday will
cause an increase in snowmelt over the higher elevations of the
Sierra which will lead to a rise in water levels on many rivers
and streams during the early part of this week.

The normal diurnal water rises each night will heighten the risk
of flooding in areas adjacent to rivers and streams early next
week. The California-Nevada River Forecast Center forecasts a
renewed threat of flooding along the upper Merced River in
Yosemite National Park by the middle of the week.

Persons living near rivers and streams in addition to hikers
and campers in the Sierra should closely monitor water levels
during the next several days and be ready to move to a place
of safety if the threat of flooding becomes imminent.

Keep in mind that rivers pose dangerous, life threatening hazards
at this time of year due to their swift currents and very cold
water temperatures. Fifteen minutes or less exposure to the icy
cold waters of a river can lead to hypothermia. Strong
currents can carry even an experienced swimmer into dangerous
parts of the river. Don`t become the next drowning casualty or the
victim of a water rescue!

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite media source

Pohono gauge was flood stage last Thursday (I was at swinging bridge) and I think it will be there again this Thursday morning
