Storms blast southern Utah, flash flooding possible
SALT LAKE CITY — Thunderstorms slammed parts of southern Utah Sunday and flash floods could happen in the national parks again Monday.
“Rain totals were anywhere from a third of an inch… some locations pushed over one inch, like Starvation Reservoir,” said KSL Meteorologist Matt Johnson.
Intense storms even brought hail as big as half-dollars in some areas.
By Monday morning, storms kept hammering down. The National Weather Service issued several weather warnings or statements Monday, especially around Kanab.
Storms are expected to taper off by later morning and afternoon.
The National Weather Service said flash flooding is possible in all of Utah’s national parks Monday, with probable flooding in Zion and Capitol Reef National Parks, as well as Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Grand Staircase-Escalante.
As for northern Utah, KSL Meteorologists forecast highs in the 70s heading into the weekend. By the weekend, highs will bump up to the low 80s.
