CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Winds continue to howl across Wyoming as we have a High Wind Warning in effect until 5 p.m. this evening for Albany, Laramie and Platte Counties. I-25 North/Southbound is closed for light and high profile vehicle due to extreme blow over risk. This also includes West/Eastbound I-80.

The good news is, throughout the day. We are expecting the conditions to be marvelous for Eastern and much of Central Wyoming- once you get past the winds.

Plenty of sunshine in Eastern Wyoming. A few clouds may linger throughout the day but conditions are pretty awesome for a Monday. Expect more snow/ice to melt today with temperatures reaching the 50s for Casper, Cheyenne and much of the Eastern and South Eastern regions of the state. However, once again winds will be relentless throughout the day. Tapering off a bit in Cheyenne but Rawlins, Laramie and Casper will especially be seeing stronger wind gusts through the next few days.

The 2020 Winter Solstice is here marking the start of Winter! Tonight will be the longest night, and today will be the shortest day of the year. On Tuesday, the days will begin to extend their duration. With another phenomenon that hasn’t happened in centuries, Saturn & Jupiter will be aligning and very close that you can see them in the night sky. A very rare and fascinating moment with a mostly clear sky tonight. I implore you see this phenomenon first hand.
