Wednesday comes with more thunderstorms and flash flood warnings for Utah.

Flash flooding closed parts of Zion National Park on Tuesday afternoon, and it created a mess when KSL TV says several homes were flooded in Southern Utah..

The National Weather Service outlined the specific areas where a fast-moving storm could cause major problems. They listed flash flooding as probable or possible around the five national parks, Glen Canyon, Grand-Staircase and San Rafael.

Thunderstorms impact both southern and northern Utah

KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman says thunderstorms are also in the forecast for the Wasatch Front. He says a lot of Utah could see heavy rain, in addition to lightning and thunderstorms in northern Utah.

“That means the possibility of localized flooding, even here along the Wasatch Front,” he said in the live forecast on KSL.

He expects those to probably come in the early afternoon. Watch for dark clouds to form and take shelter if you need.

“I think our window for the strongest storms will be between two and six in the afternoon,” he said.
