0330L-FRIDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-11/4/22
Today is a good day to download our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app. NWS info automatically comes through it. Get it now and stay advised.
MARGINAL RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER. THE TORNADO RISK HERE, IS VERY LOW. HAIL AND WINDS ARE OUR MAIN RISKS BUT STAY WEATHER AWARE.
1- The front is on it’s way. There are strong to severe storms along and behind the cold front. These storms are moving northeast at 50-60 mph. What is out west and northwest right now won’t affect us. As the cold front pushes in, if storms form southwest of us, they will be what affects the area. If any “discreet” storms get going way out ahead of the front, these will be the storms to watch very carefully for a large hail and tornado threat. We’ll wait and see how this develops for our area.
2- Overall, we’ll be ok but expect some level of severe weather this morning due to wind gusts and possibly quarter size hail. The cold front is moving fairly quickly so we’ll see where it ends up around daybreak. Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
Today- Showers with thunderstorms likely this morning, then showers likely with a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs in the mid-60s. Temperature falling into the lower 50s this afternoon. South winds 15 to 20 mph, becoming north this afternoon. Chance of rain near 100 percent.
Tonight- Mostly cloudy in the evening, then becoming partly cloudy. Much cooler with lows in the mid-30s. West winds 10 to 15 mph.
We’ll keep watch and have a good day!
