A Few Snow Chances Remain to Start the Final Week of January
January 25th, 2021
The final week of January is off to a chilly start after a low pressure system brought snow to much of Wyoming on Saturday. A few snow chances remain for parts of Wyoming to start off the new week thanks to lingering energy from that same system that is now over the southern plains. Snow showers will be possible for southeast Wyoming on both Monday and Tuesday, with Monday bringing a better chance for west of the Laramie Mountains and Tuesday for the east. Laramie will likely see the most snow for the region, and that will likely be followed up by Cheyenne. Both locations will likely not record an inch of new snowfall, and anywhere outside of those two locations will likely not record more than half an inch.
Tuesday looks to be the coldest day of the week, with nowhere in Wyoming expected to reach above freezing during the afternoon hours. The cloudy pattern that began before the weekend also looks to hang around through Tuesday before breaking as Wednesday arrives. There is plenty of good news regarding temperatures this week however if you are sick of the cold.
Once Tuesday passes, things will warm up rapidly around the state as high temperatures jump 30+ degrees in some locations between Tuesday and Friday. The sun will be back on Wednesday, and winds generally from the south will help to transport warm air into the state. Wednesday looks as though it will be a windy day for the central and southern parts of the state, with the potential for strong winds to reach as far north as Gillette. Casper will see the return of southwest winds overnight Tuesday, and sustained speeds over 30 mph are likely Wednesday afternoon with gusts over 50 mph being a possibility as well. Cheyenne and Laramie should avoid strong winds on Wednesday, as southern winds are typically not very strong for those two cities. Cheyenne and Laramie will instead have a chance for strong winds come Saturday.
