For Tuesday a system moves through the state bringing hot temperatures, strong to severe storms, and some breezy conditions. Cheyenne will top out of 93 degrees, while Casper will top out at 95 degrees. The northern part of the state will be under a marginal risk, level 1 out of 5. The main impacts will be gusty winds, small hail, and lots of lighting. The storms will start to fire up in the afternoon moving eastward.
We will be watching the western parts of the state for any dry thunderstorm activity. These storms produce little to no rain which if lightning strikes could cause a wildfire.
