Rising waters cause concern inside Yosemite National Park
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (KFSN) -- A flood-watch is in effect for some parts of the Yosemite Valley. It's spurred by rapidly melting snow in higher elevations.
The warmest temperatures are forecast for the next few days. But the National Weather Service says the Merced River at the Pohono Bridge is likely to reach flood stage sometime Tuesday night. That could bring flooding to campgrounds and trails in Yosemite Valley.
Park officials say visitors should pay close attention to possible closures.
