WASHINGTON AND KANE COUNTY, Utah – Due to thunderstorms in Southern Utah today, a flash flood warning has been put in place. A moderate, 2 out of 4, weather risk was set by the National Weather Service.

Slot canyons, dry washes, and small streams are expected to see flash floods. This tweet from the National Weather Service Salt Lake City goes into more detail.

Hikers should exercise caution and even consider postponing outdoor plans. Attempting to cross flooded, or impassable, roads is dangerous and should be avoided if possible.  

Northern Utah can expect much different weather. In fact, a few more days in the triple digits could set a record.
