GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — The National Weather Service is projecting a gradual and slight decline along all points of the Carson River heading into the close of the work week before warmer weekend temperatures cause it to bump back up into monitor stage on the East and West forks starting around Saturday.

The main stem, which crosses under Highway 395 at Cradlebaugh Bridge should level off (for the time being) roughly two feet below monitor stage sometime around Sunday according to NWS projections.

We’ll be keeping an eye on how that develops.

Look for a high of 55 degrees today with a 70 percent chance of rain and winds ranging between 15-20 mph.

Mottsville Lane re-opened on Monday, though County officials warn it could be covered over by water again in the coming days and weeks.

The Douglas County Public Library will host toddler storytime for children 18 months to 3 years of age at 10:30 a.m. Children will participate in music and felt-board stories. Preschool storytime for children ages three to five years will be at 11:15 a.m. Music and a craft accompany stories. The Minden Library is located at 1625 Library Lane.

The East Fork Fire Protection District Board of Directors meets today at 1 p.m. at the East Fork district administrative offices, 1694 County Road in Minden.

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