Weak Cold Front to Pass Through Wyoming Ahead of Halloween
October 30th, 2020
We’ve been steadily warming up across the state throughout this week following the snowstorm of this past weekend. And the warmer conditions have most certainly helped with melting the snow, especially given the sunny conditions the state has seen all week long. Today is the warmest day this week, however the trend will come to a slight halt thanks to a weak overnight cold front. This cold front will be bringing a few things to Wyoming as it passes through, but one thing it will not bring is any more precipitation.
Overnight tonight the effects of the cold front will first be felt/heard. That is of course going to be an increase in wind speeds, especially for the eastern half of the state. Winds will be borderline windy through the overnight hours, with sustained speeds between 20 and 30 mph and gusts between 40 and 50 mph. The good news is these strong winds are only expected to hang around during the overnight hours, primarily coming out of the west. Tomorrow they will shift out of the north as the cold front finishes its march through Wyoming. These northerly winds will bring breezy conditions to far Eastern Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle, but more good news with these is they will calm ahead of any nighttime Halloween festivities.
Temperatures will be cooler tomorrow as well, however this isn’t a massive temperature drop either. For today, highs around the state will mostly be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Tomorrow these will be dropped to the upper 40s and lower 50s. It’s enough of a difference that it’ll feel chillier tomorrow, but since conditions will remain above freezing and the sun will be out in force once again, snowmelt will continue. The warmup trend will then pick up right where it left off on Sunday, and well above average temperatures will kick off November across the Cowboy State. Conditions for Halloween this year are looking fantastic, and weather should not be an issue to anyone’s plans.
