Flash flood watch scheduled for much of Utah through Wednesday

SALT LAKE CITY — The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City plans to issue a flash flood watch for large parts of Utah Monday and Tuesday after heavy monsoon-like rains were predicted to move into the state.

The watch goes into effect on 3 p.m. Monday for Southern Utah, and 6 a.m. Tuesday for Northern Utah and Southwest Wyoming.

Many areas of Utah who have experienced wildfires in the recent past could experience mudslides on burn scars.
