A very light snow continues to fall in Cheyenne as we head into the heart of the week, however warmer conditions are on the horizon. Snow chances remain for southeast Wyoming into the afternoon hours today, but those should diminish as the day draws on. Overnight tonight the clouds will finally begin to break as well, and winds will shift to the south, allowing warmer air to be brought into Wyoming. Casper will likely see some strong winds Wednesday afternoon along with Rawlins and potentially Gillette, however the rest of the state should enjoy sunny skies with warmer conditions without too much wind.

A ridging pattern will build into the western US over the rest of the work week, bringing high pressure and plenty of sunshine to the region to allow things to warm up. Overall more clouds are expected to fill into the region as the week progresses, especially come Friday as a shortwave trough moves into the region late Friday into Saturday. The southern winds will continue to bring warmer air into Wyoming through Friday however, and many locations will see high temperatures in the 50s Friday afternoon.

The shortwave trough moving in late Friday will allow temperatures to drop a bit heading into Saturday, and it will also bring plenty of cloud cover to the Cowboy State. A few locations may have some snow chances to accompany that as well, mainly in the northwestern part of the state. It may also bring strong winds to Southeast Wyoming on Saturday with more breezy conditions on Sunday. Sunday also looks to bring more sunshine back to Wyoming and mild conditions will carry into the start of February next Monday.
