Episode Narrative At the end of the first week of July, monsoon moisture moved into the state from the south. Thunderstorms developed in this moist airmass, producing the first flash floods in what would become a very active month for flash flooding. While this additional moisture did not end the wildfire season completely, it reduced the explosive fire behavior that had been observed in the last week of June and first week of July.
Event Narrative Flash flooding was reported in the Subway, a popular slot canyon in Zion National Park.
