Critical fire weather conditions will redevelop across southern Utah on Saturday, mainly over the Grand Staircase with wind gusts to 30 mph and RH values as low as 5-10%. Critical conditions will increase in area and severity Sunday into Monday as RH remains very low and wind gusts increase to around 35 mph on Sunday, and up to 45 mph on Monday. Be careful with campfires and avoid any actives that create sparks. Follow local fire restrictions.
Rivers, streams, and creeks will all be running fast and cold due to snowmelt! Use caution around waterways and practice cold water safety. Monitor children and pets closely as they can quickly drown in the cold, fast flows. Hypothermia and drowning are possible with even brief periods of time in the water.
