Northern Utah will be hit with significant rainfall this week as the remnants of Hurricane Rosa move through the region. 

A flash flood watch goes into effect Tuesday morning and will last throughout the evening for Weber and Davis counties, and the eastern portion of Box Elder County, the National Weather Service of Salt Lake City said

"Moisture will surge north into central and northern Utah beginning Tuesday in advance of Hurricane Rosa, allowing for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms which will be heavy at times," the NWS said in its warning. 

Much of the state could see 1-2 inches of rain by Wednesday. 

Flash flooding is possible near steep terrain, burn scars, and urban areas with poor drainage, the NWS said. Streams and rivers will run fast and high by mid-week. 

"Travel may be impacted by mid-week due to debris flows from burn scars and potential urban flooding. Those planning to be outdoors next week should keep an eye on the weather forecast and make contingency plans," the NWS said.
