A flood warning issued for the Merced River at Pohono Bridge in Yosemite National Park remains in effect.
Flood stage, which is 10 feet, will peak again early Thursday morning at 10.6 feet, the National Weather Service reported Wednesday.
The Merced River reached about 11.7 feet early Friday, but didn’t cause damage, officials say.
Merced River is expected to peak at 10.6 feet on Thursday morning.
Never miss a local story.
At 9.5 feet, portions of Lower Pines Campground become flooded and at 10 feet, the western portion of North Pines Campground can begin to flood. At 10.5 feet, there are impacts on the swinging bridge near Chapel Meadow, which can go under water along with some access roads.
The flooding has not caused significant damage in the past week. But as temperatures rise, snow will melt into the river at a faster pace.
Park officials also want park visitors to avoid the swift-moving water because the water temperature is in the 40s and highly dangerous.
