UTAH, Aug 16, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) – Numerous weather warnings and clocks were issued for parts of Utah on Tuesday.
A flash flood watch has been issued to parts of Utah, including Salt Lake City, Provo, Ephraim, Richfield, Cedar City, St. George and Escalante, as well as Bryce, Capitol Reef and Zion National Parks. Slow storms will cause heavy rains locally, according to a tweet from the National Weather Service Salt Lake City.
“Burn scars in central Utah and slot canyons in southern Utah are particularly at risk,” the tweet said.
Additionally, with significant amounts of atmospheric moisture, adequate wind shear, and widespread instability ahead of the arriving trough, the National Weather Service has issued a minor risk of severe thunderstorms in parts of Utah for Tuesday afternoon through evening, a tweet said in a tweet.
From mid to late afternoon, occasional damaging winds and hail with severe thunderstorms could develop in central and northern Utah. Thunderstorms are forecast for Brigham City, Logan, Evanston, and Wendover.
A red flag warning was also issued for Tuesday noon to 9 p.m. The warning applies to Logan, Randolph, Brigham City, Ogden, Evanston, Salt Lake City, Tooele, Park City, Heber City, Provo, Nephi, Manti, and Delta.
The lighting is particularly dangerous after a very dry two-week period, and thunderstorm runoffs and dry micro-explosions could create erratic guests at more than 35 miles per hour.
Gephardt Daily will learn more about this development as information becomes available.
