Cooler start to the weekend with isolated shower and thunderstorm chances before warm dry weather returns later in the week
Temperatures remaining in the 60s and 70s for much of the state
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Ending our cool weekend with more cool air heading into Monday. Throughout the weekend we experienced isolated rain showers and thunderstorms throughout much of the Central and Eastern parts of Wyoming. Rain totals were not very significant throughout the weekend and most of the events maintained brief showers with occasional heavy rainfall/lightning strikes. Overall, winds remained variable leading to a nice break of a weekend from all the hot dry weather we have experienced for the last two weeks. As the cold front passed through Friday, the abundance of moisture that was brought by the system interacted with a couple of shortwave troughs from North U.S. which has produced rain/thunderstorms this weekend.
Monday, temperatures will rise to a bit warmer conditions but still remain in the 60s and 70s for most of the state. Areas near the Big Horn basin and the Northern areas will likely see the lower 80s. Expect a chance of seeing showers and isolated thunderstorms throughout the morning and afternoon hours in the Southern/Eastern areas of Wyoming. Casper has a chance of seeing some precipitation around the afternoon hours but will clear out by dinner time. Much of the day will have lingering cloud cover, especially in Cheyenne through much of the day. Winds will remain on the variable side throughout the day. If you’re not seeing rain tomorrow, cloud cover with breaks of the sun is what to be expected for Monday.
Through the rest of the week, there are chances of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms in Cheyenne specifically through the next few days until about Thursday as the High-Pressure system looks to dominate the state and produce more dry and warmer temperatures for the state as we prepare for July 4th weekend.
