More Rain, But Flood Watch Ends (For Now)

Heavy rain has stopped for today, but continues the rest of the week. The Flood Watch for Clark County was cancelled at Noon Monday, but the river remain high. Further information can be found at:

With last weeks rain and low level snow and the current snow packs, the NWS is monitoring the situation very carefully.

Even though we may escape river flooding here, many areas to the south and to the west (coastal) are experiencing some, with many of those rivers forecast for bank full or flood stage. For those of you traveling for spring break, please take extra caution in the mountains, where some avalanche danger has increased, and there is always potential for landslides with this much moisture. Check out your travel area and the rivers affecting your vacation destinations by monitoring the NWS website and local authorities.
