0315L-MONDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-7/26/21
1- General Thunderstorm Risk today. More of the same can be expected like yesterday. Storms will form where they form and those areas will receive a lot of rainfall. Storm cells won’t be moving very fast so flash flooding may be a risk along with strong winds. These storms tend to be pulse storms in nature meaning they will build up quickly rain out and collapse. When they collapse, they will produce moderate to high winds.
2- If you utilize radar, watch for outflow boundaries as they tend to be mini-fronts and as they merge, convection can occur and you have new storms. Yesterday’s storms weren’t expected to be severe but winds caused a lot of the severe issues and we’ll see this again today. Overall, we’ll be ok but keep an eye to the sky!!
