A heavy rain on melting snow event is about to take place across Northern Utah, with the focus of attention from Tooele to Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Box Elder, Cache, Summit and Rich Counties. Flood warnings and watches have been issued. For up to the minute information go to KSL.com and click on the Flood Watch--River Flow Tracker at the top of the web site. Our computer models indicate some valleys will see an excess of 1 and 1/2 inches, with local areas over 2 inches and some mountain areas exceeding 3 inches. Some of this precipitation by later Monday will fall as snow above 5,500 feet, but 12 inches or more is likely above 8,000 feet. Unfortunately, the warm weather has started the snow melt on the mid elevation rivers and this heavy rain event is going to aggravate already high rivers. Urban and small stream flooding in the metropolitan Watch Front and Cache Valley areas is highly likely between now and Monday, possibly into Tuesday. Mitigation, sandbagging and other protective measures should be taken immediately in areas where water could flow and exceed bank-full. The good news is, after Tuesday, a nice warm-up with partly sunny skies is forecast for Wednesday through the upcoming weekend. Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Dan Pope, KSL-TV, Salt Lake City, Utah.
