Pleasant Weather Expected to Begin April
March 31st, 2021
Tomorrow may be April 1st, but the weather doesn’t look to be fooling around when it comes to rebounding from Monday’s cold front. Temperatures will be right back where they were prior to the cold front for much of Wyoming by tomorrow afternoon, and even warmer than that come Friday when some places begin to eclipse the 70 degree mark heading into Easter Weekend. More good news on that front: sunshine is expected every day for the rest of the work week, and wind should overall remain calm until late this weekend and early next week.
Localized strong breezes will be possible throughout the rest of the work week, however, starting with Central Wyoming on Thursday and then back to Southeast Wyoming on Friday. Temperatures will be in the 60s across most of Eastern and Central Wyoming on Thursday, with Friday bringing some 70s to parts of Northern Wyoming. Skies are expected to remain clear through Friday, with the exception of a few clouds that build in early Friday morning over Southeast Wyoming. These should be cleared before lunchtime as temperatures soar into the upper 60s in Cheyenne and the low 70s in places like Torrington and Wheatland. Casper will also see upper 60s by Friday afternoon before cracking the 70 degree mark on Saturday; the same goes for Cheyenne.
As for Easter Weekend, right now it looks as though Easter will be the warmest day of the week, with upper 70s expected for many spots around Wyoming and lower 80s in the Nebraska Panhandle. We are however expecting relatively cloudy skies on Easter, but rain chances are expected to remain minimal throughout the holiday weekend for most of the state.
The lack of rain in the next several days is not necessarily a good thing, however. Drought conditions, especially in Central Wyoming, are still way worse than they need to be as we enter into the heart of the spring months. Strong winds early next week combined with the well above average temperatures could lead to fire weather hazards as well, especially in the drier areas. Widespread powerful winds look to return to much of the state beginning next Tuesday.
