1- We are in a GENERAL THUNDERSTORM RISK today. This means that even though the higher risk is out west today, we can still have scattered showers and thunderstorms. The main risks would be hail and winds. Don’t change your plans but just keep an eye to the sky.

2- We’ll continue with a MARGINAL RISK on Friday and then on SATURDAY, it wouldn’t surprise me to see us go from the Marginal Risk, which is forecast, to a SLIGHT RISK or ENHANCED RISK. We’ll see how this mess out there comes together.

3-If storms end up over your area, they will produce a lot of rainfall and localized flooding could occur so keep that in mind too. OVERALL, we’ll be ok.

4-I almost forgot to mention that decaying thunderstorms could put out very strong winds that could mix to the surface. Some of these winds can produce damage here on the surface so secure things around the house that could take fight in the event storms occur in your respective areas.

5-Be sure and download our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app. If you don’t have it, you’re not prepared.
