...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM NOON MDT TODAY THROUGH
The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City has issued a
* Flash Flood Watch for central and southern Utah, south of a
line from roughly Delta to Price.
* From noon MDT today through Tuesday evening
* Showers and thunderstorms capable of producing heavy rainfall
are expected this afternoon and evening across the area. The
threat for heavy rainfall will continue into the overnight
hours, with additional showers and thunderstorms expected
Tuesday afternoon and evening.
* Heavy rainfall can lead to rapid onset of flooding, with some
of the most prone areas being slot canyons, burn scars,
normally dry washes, and low water crossings. Water can rise
quickly downstream of heavy rain, even when the actual
thunderstorm is many miles away. Rock and mud slides, as well
as water flowing across roadways, will be possible and could
locally impact travel.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
