GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — We are under a new flood watch, along with a high wind warning, today with the flood watch extending into late Tuesday evening.

The National Weather Service is projecting another atmospheric river will bring heavy rains to the Sierra, with rising snow levels increasing the potential for flooding across the Sierra Front, specifically in creeks, small streams and poor drainage areas .

Low-lying areas in Carson Valley will see flooding issues, according to the National Weather Services, and the Truckee and Carson Rivers will see appreciable rises, though they are expected to remain below flood stage.

The heaviest rains are expected tonight into Tuesday.


Look for rain in the Valley today, and winds up to 65 mph. Expect a high of 51 degrees tonight and an overnight low of 37.

Chains or snow tires are required over the west sides of Kingsbury Grade and Spooner Summit, as well as Highway 50 along Lake Tahoe this morning.

That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
