CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - High Wind Warning’s are in effect for Albany, Laramie, Platte, Carbon, Sweetwater, Fremont, Hot Springs & Park County Through Monday afternoon. With a High Wind Watch for Natrona county until Tuesday @ noon. A Winter Weather Advisory has been put in place for Elk Mountain and Arlington Area for blowing snow that mimic blizzard conditions due to strong gusty winds and snowfall.

For the remainder of the night, expect those winds to not go away. At times, they may not be as strong as they were in the last 15 minutes or so. However, expect them to continue to howl throughout the night and they will not back down on Monday.

Monday: The good news is that warmer temperatures look to slide into the state. Winds will continue to be a force to be reckoned with. However, at least the forecast for much of the state is open skies, sunshine and 40s.

Monday Night: another cool one ahead but still remains to be uneventful aside from the gusty winds whipping through the air.

Long Range: A couple days in the 40s before another cold snap comes through and reminds us we are still in winter even though its the last week of February. Chance of snow in Central Wyoming Late Tuesday night could carry over early Wednesday Morning but there is not a very strong chance of widespread snowfall during the week. Into the weekend another system looks to come through and has another chance of providing some widespread wintry weather to the Cowboy State. This is something to be monitored and as it stands now has a low chance of coming to fruition.
