*WINDY TODAY AND TONIGHT. The wind gradient is strong right now and winds are expected to possibly gust upwards of 40 + mph today. Right now, wind gusts don’t appear to remain that gusty but if conditions warrant during the day, a wind advisory will be issued. Make sure you have our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app and you’ll get it before most other folks.

*The gradient will lessen late tonight through Friday as the front creeps into the area. Saturday, winds will increase with wind gusts possibly into the 40s from the NORTH. As of right now, rain chances look very low, 20% or less. We’ll see what happens here. Temps will fall into what is called the normal range for this time of the year after frontal passage. Get ready for cooler weather for at least the next 5 days or so. By the way, snow looks bleak too.

*Overall, winds will be the major factor over the next several days so secure loose things around the house so your neighbors don’t end up with gifts from above, so to speak. Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;

Today- Sunny, windy with highs in the upper 60s. South winds 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph.

Tonight- Mostly clear in the evening, then becoming mostly cloudy. Lows in the upper 40s. South winds 15 to 20 mph, diminishing to 5 to 10 mph after midnight.
