Warmer Weather’s Hidden Surprise

Now that winter weather has all but concluded in Northern Colorado, the flowers are in full bloom and the grasses are turning dark green.  As the season turns and the weather warms, the skies can also turn from peaceful.  For those of us who have spent many years in Colorado, we understand how afternoons can turn dark and dangerous.

So, with the understanding that the weather can turn dangerous, what should you do about it? There are a few very important tips that can keep you and your family safe.  First, be sure that you have a plan for your family.  Developing that plan and sharing it with your family allows everyone to know what to do if severe weather hits.  For helpful tips on how to develop such a plan, the Red Cross has some great ideas.

Second, be sure that you have a way to be notified if severe weather is approaching your area.  Be sure you know the county you live in since most warnings are based on the county and not the town or city.  The same is true if you are on vacation or on business travel.  From your smartphone to cable TV to weather radio, be sure you have a way to be updated on current weather conditions.  Being warned of pending severe weather is extremely important to your safety.

Third, if your plans are taking you outdoors, know the forecast for the day.  Be aware of signs of approaching storms.  If you are caught outdoors during an approaching storm, try to identify an area that will keep you safe until the storm passes.  This is especially important if you are caught above the tree line.  Many hikes in the high country will take you above the tree line, which can be more dangerous during severe weather.

The tips above are just the major, high-level tips to keep you safe during spring and summer storms.  Visiting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s website can give you more granular details around lightning, hail and tornado safety.  Being prepared can be the most important step to protecting you and your family during severe weather.
