A flood watch was upgraded to a flood warning Tuesday as up to 2 inches of rain fell across the Carson Range.

North of Genoa, a rain gauge measured 1.81 inches of rain falling between midnight and 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

A flood watch is in effect through early this morning, with the highest risk of flooding along steams, creeks and poor drainage areas.

“The greatest threats will be along creeks and streams that drain the foothills and the Carson Range,” according to the National Weather Service. “Low-lying areas in the Carson Valley will also see flooding issues.”

Centerville Road was closed between Highway 88 and Foothill on Tuesday afternoon due to flooding, as was Nye Lane at the Johnson Lane Wash.

High winds set a power pole on fire on Bobwhite Lane in Fish Springs, according to the East Fork Fire District. Only a half-dozen NVEnergy customers were affected by the subsequent outage.

High winds created near whiteout conditions on Highway 395 from the Mammoth Lakes turn-off to Lee Vining. The highway down south was a mess all day Monday with reports of high winds tipping over at least one truck.

Monday night was blustery with a 47 mph gust clocked at 10:55 p.m. at the Minden-Tahoe Airport.

Neither fork of the Carson River was expected to flood.

A third storm is set to arrive Thursday night.
