Walker River Basin

March 1907

Rain-on-Snow Event

No recorded precipitation is available. Information is anecdotal. Flooding resulted from a series of storms that started out as snow but then turned to rain. Heavy snows fell on March 16, 1907, and precipitation turned to rain which continued until March 20. Flooding closed roads in Antelope and Mason Valley (Rigby and others, 1998). Precipitation data at the National Weather Service Bridgeport precipitation gage (6,486 ft) indicates 3.35 inches of rain fell over 4 days from March 17-24, 1928.
