The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central Utah and southern Utah, including the
  following areas, in central Utah, Castle Country, Central
  Mountains, San Rafael Swell, Sanpete/Sevier Valleys, Wasatch
  Plateau/Book Cliffs, and West Central Utah. In southern Utah,
  Glen Canyon Recreation Area/Lake Powell, South Central Utah,
  Southern Mountains, Southwest Utah, and Utahs Dixie and Zion
  National Park.

* Through this evening

* Widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms, some with heavy
  rainfall, will continue through the morning hours across much of
  central and southern Utah. Scattered showers and thunderstorms
  capable of producing very heavy rainfall will again be possible
  this afternoon and evening across the area.

* 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.
