SOUTHERN UTAH, July 12, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A flash flood watch has been issued for parts of southern Utah beginning Tuesday at noon.

“A flash flood watch has been issued beginning at noon until midnight,” said a tweet from the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

Widespread thunderstorms could produce heavy rainfall across southern Utah and bring enhanced potential for flash flooding, especially in slot canyons, normally dry washes and recent burn scars, the tweet said.

Areas that could experience flash flooding include Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Recreation Area and the St. George area.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
