CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Starting off the night, the state is divided in terms of weather. The excessive heat watch at the Montana and Wyoming border has also turned into a fire weather warning. There is also a fire weather warning in Jackson, just south of Yellowstone. This is due to the increasing temperatures and the dry weather conditions. On the other side of the state, lots of showers and storms making there way in from the south. Most of these storms are sticking to the I80 corridor and are beginning to dissipate as we head into the late evening hours. Winds right now are only gusting where there are storms, other than that, the weather is staying calm. FutureCast is showing that clouds will begin to cover much of the state into the early morning hours and then by noon, the atmosphere blows up with thunderstorms scattering throughout much of Wyoming.
None of these are expected to be severe, so just expect some heavy rain and gusty winds. Tonight, the lows will stay higher than the last few days due to the increasing cloud cover with some mid 50s and 60s. Cheyenne tomorrow will not warm up past the upper 70s due to clouds and lots of shower activity.
Casper will be on the warmer side with mid 80s but not much hotter as the clouds are expected to stay around. For the rest of the week, the south is still expecting storm chances all the way into Independence Day weekend while the north is expecting drier conditions, but much hotter temperatures with some places hitting the mid 90s by Sunday.
