CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - High Wind Watch is in place for Eastern Wyoming through Friday morning and a High Wind Warning is in place for areas in Central Wyoming and West of the Laramie range through Midnight Friday. A Fire Weather Warning is in place until Thursday at 10 PM for North Eastern Wyoming as well.

A lot more activity is on the way after seeing such Severe Weather and Storms Tuesday Night. Though we remain dry around the state, windy and hot. This will lead to many areas to see more fire weather conditions through the next few days. Furthermore, with severe weather backing off for Wednesday, we will see a return of Thursday for Eastern areas. Ranging from level 1-2 of severe level risk but the Enhanced risk is more east impacting Nebraska Panhandle & South Dakota.

Overall severe weather looks to be reserved for Thursday afternoon/early evening and what to expect with the storms are: Heavy rain, Strong Wind Gusts, Large Hail, Flooding & a couple tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

Otherwise, warm temperatures will remain as gusty winds continue to push from the south bringing in more heat into Wyoming. A cooler day will come on Friday before temperatures rebound into mid to upper 80s and lower 90s going into the weekend. A High Pressure System will do its due diligence in keeping things dry and sunny which will be paired with warm to hot temperatures this weekend.

Remember to hydrate, use A/C if you have it, take a break from the sun in the shade, and, DO NOT leave small children or pets in your vehicles during these hot conditions. This will be hazardous and fatal if you leave the aforementioned persons or pets in a vehicle even for just a handful of minutes.

Also for those curious. After last night’s storm in Cheyenne, we have now officially passed 2020′s accumulated rain precipitation. The storm dropped about 2.39 inches of rain, bringing our total of this year now to 11.29″ so far this year. Last year’s overall total is 10.03″
