Morning Weather Update
Friday June 25, 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -
With extreme temperatures in our past, we can look towards the cooler temperatures ahead. Showers overnight continued into early this morning. Cheyenne’s early storms have progressed to the northeast heading into the Nebraska panhandle. The central portion of the state, which includes cities such as Riverton and Casper, received some heavier shows this morning. Rain will continue throughout the day today and into the weekend as well. We can give credit to the cold front, that has extended now into the southeast corner of the state, for the rain that will bring in cooler temperatures.
Showers will continue through today. Tonight, it will be possible to see some isolated thunderstorms as well. In the overnight hours, we can expected the system to have more of a scattered shower type pattern to it. The rain will be off and on, but also very light. More rain will return as we reach into Saturday afternoon. Rainfall amounts are not expected to be very high once we reach the end of our weekend. Places like Laramie, Douglas, and Casper are forecasted to reach totals near an inch of rain. The western half of the state will barely make it to a quarter of an inch of rain by Monday. The rest of the state is expected to be around half an inch or less.
Temperatures will remain much cooler as we head into the weekend. High temperatures for today and tomorrow will be in the 60s and 70s. Low temperatures for the nights will be in the 40s and 50s. Temperatures like these will continue to trend like this throughout the weekend. As we head into next week, a steady climb in temperatures will be seen. Casper is forecasted to reach into the 90s again by next weekend. But for now, enjoy the cool weather and have a great relaxing weekend.
