1- MARGINAL RISK for severe weather. Hail and winds will be the main threats. Per NWS GUIDANCE, frontal passage may occur around mid-day. I will send out more info through our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app around mid-morning.

2- Preparing an emergency kit. Details on all sorts of kits can be obtained from the FEMA, GCEM, and RED CROSS websites. There are many others too. Here is a key factor and I have stated this many times in the past; what does it take to get you through each day? Take that answer times 7 and you are good to go for you. Do this for each person in your family. You should now be able to survive for a week. Your kits should have the balance of your needs in them. It’s different for everyone so take the time to study this and apply what you learn and you should be ok. Without typing a book that most won’t read, it doesn’t get any simpler than this. Good luck with this task, you can do this.

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