0355L-TUESDAY OUTLOOK FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT-6/18/19
1- ENHANCED RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER LATER TODAY. Until then, there is a possibility for some isolated showers. We have a cold front slowly moving our way from Kansas, a dryline in the Texas Panhandle and a strengthening low level jet this evening. These things combined will make for an interesting evening. Main threats are large hail, damaging winds, a low risk for tornadoes, intense lightning, and torrential rainfall. Spotters will be briefed and put on stand-by in the event they are needed. See graphics attached.
2- FLASH FLOODING may be possible if storms move slowly and train over the same areas. We’ll have to wait and see what happens for sure.
3- Make sure you have our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app so you can keep up with advisories from us and the NWS.
