Rocks and mud left along 3600 West after Midas Creek overflowed on June 24, 2021. Forecasters say heavy storms mean the potential for more flash flooding, especially around the national parks.

SALT LAKE CITY — Wednesday comes with more thunderstorms and flash flood warnings for Utah.

Flash flooding closed parts of Zion National Park on Tuesday afternoon, and it created a mess when several homes were flooded in Southern Utah.

The National Weather Service outlined the specific areas where a fast-moving storm could cause major problems. They listed flash flooding as probable or possible around the five national parks, Glen Canyon, Grand-Staircase and San Rafael.

Thunderstorms impact both southern and northern Utah

KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman said thunderstorms were also in the forecast for the Wasatch Front. He said a lot of Utah could see heavy rain, in addition to lightning and thunderstorms in northern Utah.

"That means the possibility of localized flooding, even here along the Wasatch Front," he said in the live forecast on KSL TV.

He expected those to probably come in the early afternoon. "I think our window for the strongest storms will be between two and six in the afternoon," he said.
