*We are in a MARGINAL RISK for severe weather from roughly 6pm this evening until 4 am Friday morning. Storms will form on the high plains once again and roll our way. If we do see severe weather, it will be due to the threats of winds from 60- 80 mph and golf ball size hail. This will be watched carefully as the day wears on.

*FINALLY: AS STATED YESTERDAY, some folks are complaining about getting too many advisories or warnings over our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app. I have NO CONTROL over NWS Issuance’s. If it bothers you, you can turn those off and on without a password by tapping SETTINGS, then Notification settings, then find NOAA Weather Alerts, and turn it off. Now, you won’t receive anything until you turn it back on. NWS issues these alerts as they feel they are needed. I consider them important, mainly as a reminder we have a possible dangerous weather situation. Now you are in better control of your information. Just don’t forget to turn them back on when bad weather occurs. ALL PROTECTED CHANNELS ARE FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES/AND SPECIAL OPERATIONS PERSONNEL.

*ADVISED & PREPARED? Download our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app and you will be.
