It can pretty much be assured now that Wyoming will not see snow tonight when as recently as Tuesday it looked as though the Capital City would receive a few inches. A few effects of the storm system, now expected to form over the Great Plans, will still be felt, however precipitation is not one of them. The most noticeable effect will be a drop in temperature. We are already seeing that today with highs in the 40s and low 50s after a week where temperatures peaked in the upper 60s. We will also still have a few clouds build in over parts of Southeastern Wyoming overnight tonight, but again, these will not be bringing us snow. The chances have gone away for the Nebraska Panhandle. Parts of Northern Colorado may still see a few flakes, but the impacts will be much less than initially thought.

The lack of snow tonight also means that temperatures will be warmer than anticipated tomorrow. As late as yesterday highs were thought to top off in the lower 40s for Saturday, especially for the southeastern part of the state. Now these will reach the upper 40s and low 50s under sunny skies. The winds may pickup a bit for Cheyenne and Laramie on Saturday, but nothing too crazy is expected. The winds will however become more widespread on Sunday, even though they won’t be crazy strong. Sunday now actually looks to be a bit cooler than Saturday, with the cooling effects of the cold front still hanging around. For anybody who was looking forward to the snow, precipitation chances are on the rise for Monday. However given the fact that temperatures will peak in the mid 50s Monday afternoon, there’s a good chance it starts as rain before shifting to snow during the overnight hours. Accumulations will not happen immediately either. These snow chances also look to be limited to Southeast Wyoming, Northern Colorado, and the Nebraska Panhandle. The next chance for snow after that looks to be on the evening of Thanksgiving.
