0340L-SATURDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-6/25/2022
1- HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1PM UNTIL 8PM THIS EVENING. We could see the heat index reach 105 today. We are also in a MARGINAL THUNDERSTORM RISK area for strong to severe storms later this afternoon into the evening hours as a cold front pushes into the area. If storms occur, damaging winds and hail would be our main threats.
2- COOLER temps will be the main feature after frontal passage as highs on Sunday may only reach into the mid-70s. We do need the rain but the temps will be very welcome to take a short break from the heat. Temps will return into the mid-90s by mid-week.
3- Overall, we’ll be ok so stay cool and here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
