* A storm system out west moving east and a cold front oozing south will make an interesting day. For the Garfield County area, it looks like a LOW POSSIBILITY for rainfall but it’s not out of the question. The front is moving very slow and will be a factor this afternoon to our south and east on where severe storms will be. All hazards are possible south and east of us with large hail being the biggest threat. If you plan on traveling south and or east today, expect that possibility for severe weather this afternoon into the evening hours. The front SHOULD pass through our area sometime between 6 to 9am local time. Hopefully we’ll see some rainfall.

*Overall, we’ll be ok so enjoy the day and hopefully some rainfall. Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
