CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It was a very active day in the Cowboy state as scattered showers and storms covered all the different regions. There were even some storms that produced small hail and caused some localized flooding. Winds gusted up past 30 MPH in some places as those storm began to move through. Going into the overnight hours, we can expect most of those showers and storms to dissipate, but I cannot rule out the risk of an isolated shower. By tomorrow morning, those clouds will move back in again and we can see a pattern very similar to what we saw today. Around lunchtime and into the early afternoon, the showers and storms will pop up again and continue until the late evening hours.

Just like today, these storms are capable of producing heavy rain and even some localized flooding if the storm is large enough. Expect some strong wind gusts and some small hail too. SPC severe risk has the entire state under a general thunderstorm warning, however, the storms today were a little bit strong than they predicted.

Overnight, expect the temperatures to not cool down so much due to the increased cloud cover. By tomorrow, Cheyenne will not get past the upper 70s with the showers and storms. Casper will get much warmer, expected to hit 90, as they will see dryer conditions than the southern regions of the state.

Going into the weekend, it’s still split. Much of the south will remain wet with the chance of showers on Independence Day while the north will see much hotter temperatures in the 90s as dry conditions will be the dominant feature.
