One more full day remains in 2020, and it now looks to be a bit nicer than initially expected. For Cheyenne, there never really was much of a chance for one last bit of snow on New Year’s Eve, however in Casper it looked to be a different story earlier this week. The snow now looks to keep to the mountainous northwestern region of the state, beginning this afternoon in the form of scattered showers and sticking around until the late afternoon hours tomorrow. Casper could still see some flurries, but that’s about it, and the same goes for Riverton. Cheyenne will likely see a good deal of sunshine to finish off the year and cap temperatures off in the lower 40s.

After that passes things will warm up for the first weekend of 2021, however it is beginning to look like a windy weekend, especially on Sunday. Wind speeds on Sunday will likely be in excess of 35 mph in places like Cheyenne and Laramie with gusts over 50 mph. Light and High Profile closures will likely occur for interstates 80 and 25 in the southeastern portion of the state. Luckily in places like Cheyenne temperatures on Sunday will be in the mid to upper 40s, so it won’t feel super cold outside even with the howling winds.

Lastly, tonight is the final full moon of 2020, but clouds are expected for many locations across Wyoming as we head into the evening hours tonight, and therefore some of us may not be able to see it.
