A large portion of the state saw rain yesterday, and as the low continues to track off to the east, another round of rain will be coming to Wyoming this afternoon. This time however, severe weather will be possible, and the main area likely to see the rain is the area that needs it most: Central and Northeastern Wyoming. As a cold front marches through the state later this afternoon, an abundance of moisture in the far eastern portion of the state as well as the Nebraska Panhandle will lead to a Marginal (Level 1) risk for severe weather for the region. The primary threats will be small hail and some strong wind gusts.

Many parts of the state will be seeing breezy conditions this afternoon out of the northwest because of the cold front. The storms yesterday tracked southwest to northeast, but now with the cold front they will be tracking northwest to southeast. This could limit the amount of rainfall that Cheyenne sees this time around because the Laramie Mountain Range tends to break up storms coming from the northwest as they make their way towards the Capital City. This will not affect those in Casper or the Panhandle, however. Casper and Douglas both received little to no rainfall yesterday, so today is the best hope for those locations to get some form of drought relief. The storms did not reach Nebraska yesterday, allowing the panhandle to once again see summer like conditions in the afternoon. The cooler temperatures have arrived for the region today, and will hang around Wyoming and the panhandle for today and tomorrow. The summer heat will be making a return Friday as we head into the weekend for most of us, however Cheyenne looks to remain somewhat cool as temperatures top out in the mid 80s over the weekend.
