Don’t let this happen to you!  Check area forecasts! Vehicle being inspected by park rangers following a flash flood

Less than 0.25 inches (0.6 cm) of rain can produce flash floods. Flash floods are caused by run-off from intense, localized thunderstorms that drop a large amount of rain over a short period of time. They are most common in Capitol Reef in July, August and September, but can occur at any time of the year.
