August to Begin on a Warm Note
July 31st, 2020
The final week of July was overall below average for Wyoming thanks to the midweek cold front that brought widespread rain to the state. Locations such as Scottsbluff and Cheyenne have seen some very cool conditions this week, especially the past couple of days. However the pattern looks to reverse itself over the weekend for the majority of us as temperatures climb thanks to the return of sunny skies. The summer heat will be back with us into next week.
When it comes to the weekend, most of the state will be seeing sunny skies throughout with temperatures rebounding back into the upper 80s and lower 90s. The southeastern portion will have some rain chances on Sunday, however, and that will cool things off as we head into the first full week of August. Laramie, Cheyenne, and Scottsbluff will all have a decent chance to see some rain during the lunchtime hours on Sunday, which will drop Cheyenne back into the 70s. In fact, Cheyenne likely won’t see consistent upper 80s again until the next work week. Places like Casper however will see the 90s return this weekend and stick with them throughout next week. The forecast across the board for next week shows the return of the summer heat to all of Wyoming and the Panhandle of Nebraska. The good news is that it won’t be as hot as some of the heat waves we had in mid July. Scottsbluff likely won’t see the 90s return until late next week, while Cheyenne doesn’t have any 90s in the foreseeable future. The hottest region in the future for Wyoming looks to be the north central region, where cities like Worland will be the hot spot for the state in the days to come. On top of that, there isn’t much wind in the future for Wyoming either.
