0255L-TUESDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-12/13/22
1- Strong thunderstorms were moving into the area as I started this writing. The intensity of the storms here is decreasing as the line was moving east. All severe tags have been removed and so just enjoy the rainfall, the lightning and thunder. Unfortunately, the line is moving northeast at 55 mph so rainfall totals shouldn’t be too high and this won’t probably affect our drought issues.
2- After this line moves through, we’ll expect a front to come through later this afternoon and then we’ll see cooler temps FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR SO.
