Flood Watch issued for Logan River

A Flood Watch has been issued for the Logan River. The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City has issued the watch for a portion of Northern Utah, including the Cache Valley from late Monday night through Tuesday afternoon.With the onset of temperatures five to 10 degrees above normal on Sunday and Monday, the warmer temperatures are expected to push the Logan River above flood stage on Tuesday morning. The Logan River, when flowing at 1350 CFS, will damage summer homes in Logan Canyon. The area near the confluence of the Blacksmith Fork River and the Logan River will also be impacted. The flooding in this area is expected to be short-lived due to a cold front moving through the area Monday evening. Additional river rises exceeding flood stage are anticipated sometime this upcoming weekend.
