CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Saturday was feeling good, but Sunday will be better. A High Pressure system continues to settle in Wyoming prompting dry conditions. Warmer air will move in on Sunday with 50s and 60s in the forecast with plenty of sunshine. This will all change, as a strong Low from the north looks to descend upon Wyoming Late Sunday night after temperatures hitting those warm points.

About the new system, it is packing some good amounts of moisture working in tandem with an upper level trough. This will influence rain turning to snow as those temperatures begin to drop going into Sunday night. This will mostly impact the northern areas of the state until the system organizes more around Monday where it will be much more widespread. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Washakie, Fremont, Natrona & Johnson Counties Through Monday 11 p.m. With a Winter Storm Watch in effect for Big Horn & Sheridan Counties through Monday 3 p.m.

Impacts could be severe for certain areas. We will continue to monitor the development of this system throughout the weekend.
