The National Weather Service has issued a <a href="http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/total_forecast/getprod.php?wfo=slc&amp;sid=SLC&amp;pil=FFA" target="_blank">flood watch</a>&nbsp;today for most of Southern Utah around Dixie and Zion National Parks. These storms can be extremely dangerous, especially around slot canyons and dry washes where a flood can hit hours after rain fell miles away.
