Thunderstorms, along with predictions for isolated heavy rains, had much of Utah under a flash flood watch Tuesday, and the risk for flooding and mud slides was expected to continue into mid-week.
The National Weather Service set the advisory covering a swatch of Utah's central, mountainous spine and environs from Salt Lake County running south through Provo, Price, Manti, Milford, Cedar City, Escalante, Zion National Park and St. George kicked in noon Tuesday and extend throughout the evening, coinciding with the arrival of rain-laden storm clouds over the region.
Nonetheless, high temperatures were expected to remain warm, ranging into the low to mid-90s along the Wasatch Front in Wednesday, mirroring Tuesday's forecast. Southern Utahns in particular could be affected by heavy rainfall on slopes recently denuded by wildfires, which could unleash flash floods and mud slides. High temperatures in Utah's Dixie were forecast to hover in the low 90s Wednesday, as also predicted for Tuesday.
