Time to Rebound Now that the Rain has Passed
April 28th, 2021
The state of Wyoming received some much needed rain yesterday thanks to a low pressure system that came from the southwest and moved through Northern Colorado. The southeastern corner of the state received the most, especially Cheyenne, where the rain began during the mid-afternoon hours and didn’t stop until after midnight this morning. The clouds from that system are still hanging around in scattered nature, however as the rest of today progresses they ultimately will clear up ahead of tonight.
Temperatures for this afternoon are topping off in the upper 50s to the mid-upper 60s, with the northern part of Wyoming seeing the warmest conditions as it was least affected by yesterday’s system. While temperatures are still expected to be chilly tomorrow morning, the big leap in temperatures is set to occur for Thursday as clouds will remain scarce until the late afternoon hours. Highs for Thursday are expected to be in the upper 60s to the mid 70s, and not a whole lot of wind to accompany them.
Friday will be the warmest day of the week for a handful of locations as highs reach the upper 70s and lower 80s for the first time in months for much of the state. Again, abundant sunshine is expected for most of the state on Friday before cloud cover begins to fill back in on Saturday and especially Sunday with the arrival of the next system. Winds will begin to pickup on Saturday as well as the jet stream shifts from a ridging pattern into a trough pattern ahead of the next system. That trough will begin to cool things off on Sunday, with high temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Sunday also looks to have some scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon which will give way to widespread stratiform rainfall for much of the state on Monday as temperatures cool back down into the lower 50s and upper 40s, much like this past system.
