SALT LAKE CITY — Severe weather covered the state of Utah from one end to the other on Sunday.

Southern Utah saw additional flash flood warnings issued. In the Cedar City and Enoch areas, a flash flood emergency was issued by the National Weather Service (NWS). That warning was extended to 6:45 p.m.

According to NWS, during a flash flood emergency, individuals must seek higher ground immediately and avoid walking through flooded waters.

A flash flood warning was also issued for parts of central and eastern Utah on Sunday.

Severe thunderstorms passed through portions of Box Elder, Tooele, Davis and Salt Lake County Sunday evening. In some instances, wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour were associated with those storms.

In Salt Lake County, Big Cottonwood Canyon (SR-190) was closed for a time due to road conditions. 

At 8 p.m., Salt Lake City police reported localized street flooding in parts of downtown.

Late Sunday evening, the NWS issued a flash flood warning for parts of Davis County that was set to expire around 11 p.m.

In Tooele County, heavy rainfall was expected to lead to urban and small stream flooding in the Tooele, Stockton and Erda communities until 9:30 p.m.

According to Britany Lopez, the assistant city manager for Tooele County, 25 homes suffered water damage from the flash flooding there.

A break is coming

The state will be getting a break from the wet weather. 

In Cedar City, the forecast calls for mostly dry conditions for the next 10 days. In northern Utah, temperatures will be climbing back into the 90s, with a high of 98 forecasted for Thursday.
