CACHE COUNTY, Utah - The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Cache County, Utah.

It will remain in effect until June 5 for snowmelt.

Officials said recent rapid warming has led to significant snowmelt causing the Logan River to rise and is likely to cause flooding.

The river is forecast to reach flood stage at 7 p.m. Wednesday and peak by Friday.

Officials said it will likely remain above flood stage until at least through the first week of June.

The NWS says, at 5 feet, minor flooding will impact the Birch Glen summer home development in Logan Canyon.

Various campgrounds throughout Logan Canyon may also see flood damage.

Officials are warning campers and hikers to avoid streams and creeks.

The city has not set up any sandbag filling stations yet but is monitoring water levels.
