Parts of Utah were expected to remain under a flash-flood watch starting Monday afternoon as storms moved into the state.

The National Weather Service issued the watch, which warns of the risk of flash flooding, for much of central and southern Utah. The watch expires Tuesday evening.

The weather service said showers and thunderstorms were likely across central and southern Utah starting Monday afternoon and ending Tuesday evening.

The watch was issued for areas west of the Green River and extended as far north as Utah County. People near burn scars from recent wildfires were among those who could be most at risk for the flash flooding.

Salt Lake City's high temperature for Monday was pegged at 84 degrees and 76 Tuesday; Ogden looked for 83 and 76 degrees, respectively; Provo 82 and 77; Logan 81 and 76; Wendover 83 and 76; Duchesne 76 and 69; Cedar City 74 and 70; St. George 86 and 82; and Moab 89 and 80 degrees.

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality predicted Monday would be a "green" or good air quality day.
