0325L-FRIDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-02/24/23
* Partly cloudy and cold for today. There might be some freezing precip later today so look at the graph attached. The situation for the severe event forecast for Sunday is still not set in stone. Many variables still up in the air, so as this all comes together, we just have to wait as this system gets closer. We have a briefing each day into Sunday so we’ll send out updates accordingly.
* WHAT CAN YOU DO? First- no need to panic. Media folks will panic people enough. Second- I have talked preparedness for years. What is YOUR plan? Make these decisions now so if and when the worse might occur, you already know what to do. Most folks don’t prepare and they are the ones who get into a bind. Plan now while your calm. Making decisions while under stress is very difficult for most.
*WILL THE WORST HAPPEN? Don’t know. The NWS is keeping a close eye on this and passing info to us and in turn we pass that to you. This Sunday is a 50/50 chance for us to have severe weather. If you want to keep up with discussions, here is a link to the NWS/NORMAN- https://www.weather.gov/oun/ Also here is a link to the Storm Prediction Center- https://www.spc.noaa.gov/
