Logan River Flood Watch now extended through Sunday morning

According to the National Weather Service out of Salt Lake City, the Flood Watch continues for the Logan River in Cache County now through Sunday morning. Warmer temperatures are expected Wednesday. This will significantly increase snowmelt and resultant flows on the Logan River Wednesday into Thursday. The Logan River may exceeded flood stage Wednesday morning. The current stage of the Logan River near State Dam is 4.88 feet, or 1256 CFS. Flood stage is 5.0 feet or 1354 CFS. A Flood Watch means there is potential for flooding based on current forecasts. Monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop. Rivers across Northern Utah will continue to flow at elevated levels. Some of these rivers remain near flood stage. Continue to monitor future flood statements for additional information on affected rivers. It is important to note that although most area rivers and streams remain below flood stage, flows through these waterways remain cold, swift and powerful. This combination is dangerous not just for children, but adults as well as hypothermia can quickly set in when exposed to water of these temperatures, significantly limiting ones ability to rescue themselves. High flows will continue on area rivers and streams throughout the next several days. Flows along most rivers and streams are expected to increase midweek as temperatures rise once again, with additional flooding possible during the upcoming week across Northern Utah. Continue to monitor flood statements for more information. Another round of Pacific weather disturbances are forecast to bring scattered showers and thunderstorms back to the northern outlook area for the latter part of the week through the first half of the coming weekend. A second stronger weather disturbance arriving late in the weekend will bring the threat of widespread precipitation to Northern Utah and Southwest Wyoming, along with significantly cooler temperatures across the entire area.
