Wyoming Winds in full force Monday as cooler air begins to sweep the state
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Winds are on steroids today already hitting over 60+ MPH gusts in many areas of the state. Good news is SE Wyoming is enjoying plenty of sunshine and warmth until the cold front which is descending from the NW makes it to the rest of the state.
With such forceful winds, Extreme Blow Over Risk has been issued by WYDOT along I-80 & I-25, closing travel to light and high profile vehicles this afternoon.
Cooler air is beginning to split the state in half heading into the afternoon but High Wind Warning’s will remain for many areas from 6 p.m. today to 9 p.m. tonight. An elevated fire outlook for Eastern Wyoming and Fire Weather Warning is in place until 6 p.m. for Crook, Campbell, Weston & Sheridan counties.
There is a chance as the low and cold front sweeps through to bring snow/rain showers to SE Wyoming, however NW and parts of Central are already seeing showers as I type this with snow & rain mixes. Conditions look to overall remain dry with the next two days being cooler before we warm back up to those comfortable and pleasant temperatures for the Holiday Weekend.
