Pleasant Weather Expected for Final Weekend of November
November 27th, 2020
Only a few days remain in November now that Thanksgiving has passed. There were a few snow showers on Thanksgiving, but heading into the weekend snow chances are very slim. In fact until Saturday night there won’t be many clouds around Wyoming at all thanks to more high pressure that has built in over the Rockies. Additionally not much wind is expected this weekend outside of the middle of the state. Casper and Rawlins will likely see some strong breezes through Saturday, but temperatures for Saturday are expected to climb into the mid to upper 50s for many locations around Wyoming. A weak cold front is expected to pass through the state late Saturday night into Sunday, and it could bring a few isolated snow showers to the northern central part of the state, mainly around the Big Horn Mountains. These will come in from the north, and are expected to dissipate as they push southward. This cold front will also bring some strong breezes to Cheyenne during the overnight hours Saturday into Sunday, however they are expected to calm during the day on Sunday. Temperatures will take a nice drop on Sunday however, with highs back in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
Heading into the next work week temperatures will rebound again on Monday back up into the 50s. To go along with that however is the return of the Wyoming winds. Strong winds will begin in the middle of the state, becoming more widespread during the overnight hours. The Jet Stream is expected to set up over northeastern Wyoming, bringing cold Canadian air to the state as well as very strong winds. The strongest winds as of now are expected to be in the northeastern corner of the state, especially on Tuesday, but ultimately they will be wherever the Jet Stream sets up. Tuesday will also be a lot colder than Monday, once again with high temperatures back in the 30s. This is thanks to the Jet Stream pulling that Canadian Air into Wyoming.
A little less certain for Tuesday is the chance for snow. As of now the American Model is seeing a system move through Wyoming Tuesday into Wednesday, and it is expected to bring a little bit of snow. The European model on the other hand is not seeing this system and is expecting a calmer, sunny day for Tuesday. Earlier this week it was the European Model seeing snow next Tuesday and not the American, however they have now swapped stances. This will be something to monitor over the weekend and into next week as Tuesday gets closer and confidence grows.
