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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are
expected with the main threat being gusty outflow winds and
frequent lightning, focusing mainly in the mountains south of
Interstate 70.

Warm temperatures during the day and overnight will continue the
rapid snowmelt. Some rivers will rise to, or remain above bank
level resulting in bothersome low-land flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms will occur during the
afternoon and evening hours continuing through Tuesday with a
focus over the higher terrain. Gusty outflow winds and frequent
lightning will be the primary threats with storms. Drier
conditions are expected Wednesday and Thursday, then another
chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms is expected Friday.

Temperatures will run above normal through midweek which will
accelerate the snow melt. As a result, some rivers will rise to,
or remain above bank level resulting in bothersome low-land
flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.

Flood Advisory

Flood Statement
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
1140 AM MDT Sat Jun 15 2019

...The flood advisory continues for the Colorado River...

  Colorado River near CO-UT State Line affecting Mesa and Grand
  Counties

.Water levels and flows along the Colorado River in Mesa and Grand
Counties will decrease due to a reduction of reservoir
releases on the Gunnison River. The recent warm trend will increase
river levels again this weekend. Minor low land flooding is
expected with impacts along recreation trails already being
experienced. The water is swift, cold and contains debris and
snags. Know your limits if recreating on or near the Colorado, a
life jacket and proper equipment is a must. Smaller tributaries in
the area are also running fast and cold. Banks will be unstable
during these conditions and should be avoided.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Safety Message...Caution is urged when walking near waterways. Avoid
flooded areas and unstable riverbanks. Stay tuned to developments by
listening to NOAA Weather Radio or your local TV or radio stations.
