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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A system will be moving over the forecast area today bringing
rain, heavy at times, along with some thunderstorms. The heavy
rain will increase chances for flash flooding, especially over
canyon country and recent burn scars, so a Flash Flood Watch is in
effect for eastern Utah and southwest Colorado through 4 pm.
Gusty winds and hail will be possible through the day under the
stronger thunderstorms. Wind gusts could exceed 60 mph even
without a storm especially above the treeline.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Critical fire weather conditions are possible across Southeast
Utah and southwest Colorado Sunday into Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is needed later this morning and into the
afternoon as the chance for severe thunderstorms increases across
the area. The main threat with these storms will be damaging wind
gusts.

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.
