Temperatures Continue to Climb
October 28th, 2020
We’ve reached the mid-point of the work week and temperatures around the state are turning the corner. Almost all locations today across Wyoming will be at least 10 degrees over the freezing point, allowing for even more snowmelt as Halloween gets closer. For the southeastern part of the state, the rate of snowmelt will continue to rise as we progress through the work week, however given the amount received this past weekend it likely will not be all gone by the time Halloween arrives on Saturday. For locations further north, such as Casper, the majority if not all of the snow should be gone by Halloween given that we received only a few inches from this past storm. Casper is still the breezy spot around the state this week, as overall there has been very little wind in Wyoming this week. That trend also looks to carry into the weekend.
Temperatures are expected to climb through Friday, when a slight dip in the jet stream will cool temperatures slightly for Halloween. No inclement weather is expected with this dip; it’s simply going to drop high temperatures around the state on Friday by about 5-10 degrees going into Halloween. Then the warming trend will resume, bringing very warm temperatures to start November; for some locations these could be more than 20 degrees above the seasonal average. As of now the next bout of winter weather is not in sight, and the mild conditions look to carry us through next week as well. It is still a ways out, however conditions do look plenty nice for anyone planning on voting for Election Day next Tuesday.
