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

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.

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.
