After a crazy weekend of wind across Wyoming that kept the interstates closed to semi-trucks and motorcycles for the better half of it, warmth and sunshine have returned along with calmer conditions (for most locations). High pressure has built in over the Central and Western US, and will be driving Temperatures are soaring to the mid and upper 60s for Central and Eastern Wyoming, more than 20 degrees above average for this time of year. A few places may crack the 70 degree mark today and again tomorrow. While the warm conditions are expected to last through Thursday, the sunny conditions are likely to only hang around today. Clouds will begin to fill in overnight tonight and will blanket large portions of the state tomorrow afternoon. However, southerly winds will continue to bring warmer temperatures to the state despite that, especially to locations like Casper that are not getting a break from the windy conditions that the weekend brought.

After tomorrow temperatures will begin to drop, with the most noticeable drop coming Friday as the next storm system arrives. The timing of this next system is not fully known at this time, but it looks to be sometime between Friday night and Lunchtime Saturday. It will be dropping temperatures into the 20s Friday night as well, but how cold it actually will get is still unknown and could continue to trend lower. The good news is as of right now temperatures look to be average to slightly above average throughout Thanksgiving week, meaning a repeat of last year (two massive snowstorms) is highly unlikely.
