... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Monday afternoon through
Monday evening...

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Colorado and southeast
Utah... including the following areas... in Colorado... Animas
river basin... central Gunnison and Uncompahgre River basin...
Four Corners/upper Dolores River... grand and Battlement
mesas... northwest San Juan Mountains... Paradox Valley/lower

Gunnison River Valley and west Elk and Sawatch mountains. In
southeast Utah... canyonlands/Natural Bridges... La Sal and
Abajo Mountains and southeast Utah.

* From Monday afternoon through Monday evening

* flash flooding is possible Monday due to heavy rainfall from
monsoonal moisture and a disturbance that will move north over
the area. Storms will also be slow moving further increasing
flash flooding risks.

* Debris and mud flows will be possible especially near old burn
scars including the papoose burn scar.

* Steep terrain will be especially susceptible to flash flooding.
Those living in and around steeper terrain or near arroyos or
small streams and creeks should monitor the latest forecasts

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.

Special Statement

Statement as of 3:35 AM MDT on July 28, 2014

Expires 6:15 PM EDT on July 28, 2014

... Heavy rain from showers and thunderstorms possible this afternoon
through Wednesday...

There is the potential of very heavy rainfall across eastern Utah
and western Colorado this afternoon through Wednesday as deep
monsoonal moisture spreads over the area. The heaviest rainfall is
expected over southeast Utah and southwest Colorado this afternoon
and evening. The chance for heavy rainfall increases and becomes
more widespread across all of eastern Utah and western Colorado
Tuesday afternoon and evening as a stronger disturbance moves
through the area. Storms will be slow moving so localized
flooding will be possible. Normally dry washes and creek beds
could flow and create running water across low-lying roads.
Localized debris flows or Falling Rocks will also be possible in
steep terrain areas susceptible to runoff problems.

Please report any heavy rain... flooding issues... or severe weather
issues to the National Weather Service in Grand Junction. For
additional information... check out the online weather briefing
available on our web site at http://www.Weather.Gov/gjt or on our
facebook and youtube pages.
