0330L-TUESDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-11/28/23 *No major impacts to the area until “possibly” late Wednesday evening into Thursday when a shortwave trough moves through the area.

I received several calls yesterday about whether we would get a lot of winter precip this weekend and here is that answer: as of now, NO.
