1-We lucked out last night and only had fairly strong winds overnight. Our highest gust was 37 mph per the Oklahoma Mesonet. Storms turned more to the east and went just south of us. Don’t worry folks; we are in a MARGINAL RISK today and tonight for severe weather. We are close to the southwest portion of a slight risk area so we may see storms later today. Even though all hazards are possible, the tornado threat is very low. Our main risks will be large hail and winds. Rainfall could be another risk with localized flooding if storms do occur and move slowly or train over the same areas.  Again today, we’ll keep an eye out and advise accordingly.

2- Being that we will be a bit more in the firing line later this afternoon, prepared accordingly. You know what risks are possible so just be ready for any and all hazards. Be sure to get our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app and stay up with the latest info from us and the NWS.

3- Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;

Today-Partly cloudy with a 20% chance of thunderstorms late in the afternoon. Some thunderstorms may be severe. Highs in the mid-80s with South winds 15 to 20 mph.

Tonight-Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of thunderstorms in the evening, then a chance of thunderstorms after midnight. Some thunderstorms may be severe in the evening. Lows in the mid-60s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph.

FINALLY, our spotters will stay on standby for today and tomorrow and will be deployed if needed. HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
