...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM NOON MDT TODAY THROUGH THIS
EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch 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.

* From noon MDT today until midnight MDT tonight

* Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
  across central and southern Utah this afternoon and evening.
  Many of these storms will be capable of producing very heavy
  rainfall, which may result in flash flooding.

* 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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
