Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:35 AM MDT on July 25, 2017

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on July 26, 2017


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Colorado and Utah, including the following areas, in
Colorado, Animas river basin, central Colorado River Basin,
central Gunnison and Uncompahgre river basin, central Yampa
river basin, debeque to Silt corridor, Elkhead and park
mountains, Flat Tops, Four Corners/upper Dolores river, Gore and
Elk Mountains/Central Mountain valleys, Grand Valley, grand and
battlement mesas, lower Yampa river basin, northwest San Juan
Mountains, Paradox Valley/lower Dolores river, Roan and tavaputs
plateaus, San Juan river basin, southwest San Juan Mountains,
Uncompahgre Plateau and Dallas Divide, upper Gunnison River
Valley, upper Yampa river basin, and west Elk and sawatch
mountains. In Utah, arches/Grand Flat, canyonlands/Natural
Bridges, eastern Uinta Basin, eastern Uinta Mountains, La Sal
and Abajo Mountains, southeast Utah, and tavaputs plateau.

* Scattered to numerous thunderstorms with heavy rain are expected
over the watch area today. The threat for flash flooding will
linger through the evening hours.

* Flash flooding due to heavy rainfall is possible, especially
over already saturated soils and areas of steep terrain. Steep
canyons, burn scars, and normally dry streams, washes and
arroyos are most susceptible to flash flooding. Water can rise
quickly downstream of heavy rain, even when a thunderstorm is
miles away. Rock and mud slides, and high water flowing across
roads, are also possible which could impact travel.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
