At 643 PM MDT, sheep creek and Willis Creek, both drainage's
beginning in Bryce Canyon National Park have received copious
amounts of rainfall this evening. Sheep creek received according to

washes, streams, and rivers can become raging killer currents in a
matter of minutes, even from distant rainfall.

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 2:51 PM MDT Jul. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Tuesday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Utah and southern Utah, including the
following areas, in central Utah, Castle country, central
mountains, San Rafael Swell, Sanpete/Sevier valleys, Wasatch
Plateau/Book Cliffs, and west central Utah. In southern Utah,
Glen Canyon Recreation Area/Lake Powell, south central Utah,
southern mountains, southwest Utah, and utahs Dixie and Zion
National Park.

* Through Tuesday evening

* showers and thunderstorms have formed over the higher terrain
areas of the watch area already this afternoon and have produced
locally intense rainfall up to 2 inches in an hour. The
thunderstorm activity is expected to increase in areal extent
late this afternoon and through the evening across the area.
The threat for heavy rainfall will continue into the overnight
hours as well, 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.
