FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
Rain is back in the forecast once again. We are in a MARGINAL RISK (LOW) for severe weather later today. “If ” we see any severe storms, the main risks would be hail and strong winds. It would probably be similar to last Tuesday but not quite as intense. We do stand a 50-70% chance for rain and that is a good thing.
Just remember that after all these rain events occur and we warm up a little, the skeeters will definitely be on the loose. As several folks out in the rural areas have already stated, they are already on the loose out there. If you have any standing water, I would buy some mosquito dunks and place a few in that water. It will kill those little sneaky critters before they nail you.
Speaking of critters,Ticks got me last summer and I was ill for quite some time. I still feel the effects today. Mosquitoes can do the same thing if you aren’t careful. Check yourself and the kids for ticks and protect them and the family from the skeeters. Preventive actions NOW can save you in the long run.
Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
Saturday-Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 69. East northeast wind 11 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 24 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
