... Flash Flood Watch in effect from noon MDT today through this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Colorado and Utah, including
the following areas, in Colorado, Animas river basin, central
Colorado River Basin, central Gunnison and Uncompahgre river
basin, central Yampa river basin, debeque to Silt corridor,
Elkhead and park mountains, Flat Tops, Four Corners/upper
Dolores river, Gore and Elk Mountains/Central Mountain
valleys, Grand Valley, grand and battlement mesas, lower Yampa
river basin, northwest San Juan Mountains, Paradox
Valley/lower Dolores river, Roan and tavaputs plateaus, San
Juan river basin, southwest San Juan Mountains, Uncompahgre
Plateau and Dallas Divide, upper Gunnison River Valley, upper
Yampa river basin, and west Elk and sawatch mountains. In
Utah, arches/Grand Flat, canyonlands/Natural Bridges, eastern
Uinta Basin, eastern Uinta Mountains, La Sal and Abajo
Mountains, southeast Utah, and tavaputs plateau.

* From noon MDT today through midnight MDT tonight

* scattered to numerous thunderstorms with heavy rain are expected
over the watch area, developing by this afternoon and continuing
through late this evening.

* Flash flooding due to heavy rainfall is possible, especially
over already saturated soils and areas of steep terrain. Slot
canyons, burn scars, and normally dry streams, washes and
arroyos are most susceptible to flash flooding. Water can rise
quickly downstream of heavy rain, even when a thunderstorm is
miles away. Rock and mud slides, and high water flowing across
roads, are also possible which could 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.
