* A cold front is slowly moving this way. Timing is an issue right now as it speeds up and slows down so it should come through the area sometime this afternoon or evening. With it comes a chance for thunderstorms with a few possibly severe. We are in a MARGINAL RISK AREA but again timing will be an issue. There is that chance we won’t see any rain but hopefully it’ll come. Wind and large hail would be our threats if storms do occur. We’ll keep an eye out on this. Be sure to download our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app as NWS advisories and warnings come through it IN DETAIL when they are issued.

*Saturday morning will be COLD with lows in the upper 30s or low 40s. Either way, a lot colder than we’ve been this fall. Be prepared for this. Overall, we’ll be ok so here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
