Scattered Storms Leave Tonight, Back Again Early Tomorrow
By: Jordan Frazier
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Just like yesterday, lots of scattered showers and thunderstorms across much of the state today. Some storms were even on the severe side dropping some small hail. The only difference is that the storms today were coming from the west rather than the south. As we head into the overnight hours, there is still the possibility of an isolated shower until about midnight, then conditions should begin to clear up. For the north, the clouds will begin to go away leading to some decent heating going into the holiday weekend. For the south, the clouds will stick around leading to some isolated showers as early as 9am tomorrow. Just like today, much of the state is expecting to see scattered showers and thunderstorms tomorrow with some of them starting in the early hours. These storms are expected to last throughout much of the day and die off by around midnight again.
SPC severe risk has the state under a general thunderstorm risk with part of the Nebraska panhandle under a marginal risk. Expect some heavy rain, strong wind gusts, and some small hail. I wouldn’t be surprised if these storms have some small severe potential as well as have the risk for some localized flooding. In terms of temperatures, Casper is expected to hit the lower 90s despite the increase in rain chances into the afternoon hours. Cheyenne will hit the mid 80s by mid-day, but the rain chances drop off any potential for getting warmer.
Heading into the holiday weekend, plan on an isolated shower or storm in the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 80s for the southern regions of Wyoming. For the northern regions, the chance of rain is small but the chance for highs in the mid to eve upper 90s is possible going into Independence Day.
