Showers All Around With Little Accumulation but a Big Cool Down
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We started off this morning with lots of showers and storms throughout much of the state but that has since settled down. There are still scattered showers and storms around, just not as much as we saw around this time last night. We expect these showers and storms to continue into the overnight hours but they won’t produce much in terms of sever weather. The Storm Prediction Center says for tomorrow to expect just a general thunderstorm risk for the southern portion of the state.
This can be associated with some high wind gusts and some heavy rain. Beyond that, most of these storms are not producing the accumulation that we were expecting. Overnight, some areas such as Lander and Riverton can expect to see a quarter inch of rain but most areas won’t see much if any accumulation. Through tomorrow and into Sunday, that’s where some regions can see at most half an inch of rain.
The biggest story with these storms is the significantly cooler weather. Tonight, some places like Cheyenne can expect to see upper 40s. For tomorrow, the highs don’t get above 70 in most regions and that is due to the increase in cloud cover and shower activity. This is very welcomed as we started off this week in the low to mid 90s. The weather will stay cool throughout much of the weekend, but the showers will stay with us too. By next work week, much of state will begin to dry off and the temperatures will go back up, just not as hot as it was earlier this week.
