Flood watch in effect for Utah on Tuesday

SALT LAKE CITY — After a very dry September, Utah could see a bunch of rain the first week of October, with a flood watch in place for much of the area.

“We need to be prepared for the possibility of heavy rainfall,” said KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman. “The three areas of concern are burn scars up north, areas with steep terrain, or areas where there’s poor drainage.”

Weyman says it could mean 2 to 4 inches of rain. Most of the rain should come Tuesday.

“It’s a Flood Watch, meaning moisture from Rosa is going to creep into the state tomorrow. Heavy rain is going to be possible beginning tomorrow morning all the way through tomorrow evening,” he said

The National Weather Service of Salt Lake City has this Flash Flood watch from Monday afternoon to Wednesday morning.

Weyman says a Flood Warning is more imminent, meaning the flooding is already occurring. Before it happens it is a Watch.
