Southeastern Utah and southwest Colorado are under a Flash Flood Watch through Monday evening. Locally heavy rainfall will pose a threat to dry washes, slot canyons, and streams.

Monday’s rain will be light compared to what’s coming later in the week. The trough and Pacific moisture fueling these Southwest storms will slide east and team up with a surge of Gulf moisture by the middle of the week. Eastern New Mexico, southeast Colorado, and the Panhandle region of Texas and Oklahoma could be talking widespread two to four inch rainfall totals. Isolated reports could be upwards of six inches. Ski resorts will be celebrating in Colorado. Elevations above 8,000 feet could measure four to six inches of snow. Climb to more than 10,000 feet and that number jumps to near ten inches. Winter driving conditions will be likely during the Tuesday through Thursday time frame.
