This year, it also poses a later-than-normal risk of flooding in some areas. Due to hot weather this week, starting Wednesday morning and peaking early Friday morning, the Merced River in Yosemite Valley — where temperatures are forecast to hit 84 degrees Wednesday — could overflow its banks.
The river’s flood stage is 10 feet. It is expected to exceed
that height shortly after midnight Wednesday, peaking at 11 feet around
2 a.m. on Friday. Such a level, while inconvenient, would not cause
major flooding in Yosemite Valley.
