Are You Prepared if We have Localized Flooding Next Week?

Fall Safety from your Weather Ready Nation Team

Fall is the time when the tropical waters are the warmest. There is always a lag. So it is the time of the year when we have the potential to see remnants from tropical storms. Last week we saw the remnants of Tropical Storm Kay.

Next week, it looks like we will have a LOT more rain from Tropical Storm “M”. M is just a disturbance at this time off the Mexican western coast line. She is forecast to intensify over the next 48 hours and move northwest and her tropical moisture has the potential to advect into our area. Shawn will have all the details in his forecast discussion tomorrow.

So, it is a perfect time to reflect on weather safety.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
