This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will fire this
afternoon over higher terrain. Most convection will form from the
central mountains towards the northern valleys. A few showers and
storms may also fire over the San Juans.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Gusty winds and dry conditions will move across the area Friday
ahead of a strong system. Critical fire weather conditions will be
met for portions of eastern Utah and northwest Colorado so Red
Flag Warnings have been issued to account for these conditions

The Pacific system will move through Friday night into Saturday
bringing widespread rainfall to the region with some thunderstorms
likely. Increased snowmelt and the rainfall may also increase
flooding concerns for those rivers already running high and fast.
Much cooler temperatures move in for the start of the work week.

Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
409 PM MDT Tue Jun 2 2020

...Rivers and Streams Could Respond Quickly to Rainfall this
Weekend...

Abnormally high temperatures over an extended period have
accelerated the high elevation snow melt. Flows in area rivers,
streams, and creeks will continue to run at elevated levels as the
recent snowmelt and reservoir releases work downstream.
Significant flooding is NOT forecast at this time as many
waterways peak for the season this week into the the early
weekend.

Rainfall is forecast Friday into Saturday. Rivers, streams and
creeks could react quickly and run near or slightly over bankfull
conditions causing localized lowland flooding due to the extra
water.

Anyone planning to recreate on area waterways should maintain
awareness and use an abundance of caution in or near the water.
