CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - For the rest of the evening, isolated showers and thunderstorms will remain in the state but look to die out and move on into the early evening hours. Some of these storms could be severe and have a possibility of having moderate to heavy rainfall, large hail and strong severe winds. This will lead to clearing of the night sky in Wyoming and some cooler temperatures but they will remain into the 60s and upper 50s throughout the state. The stationary frontal boundary is acting as a catalyst for theses storms to pop up, however, they are short lived. Throughout the night, expect it to be more quiet especially as winds look to remain on the lighter side throughout the night.

July 4th: Heat will come back pushing temperatures into the upper 80s and 90s for much of the state. Sunshine will dominate the skies until early afternoon hours where more pop up showers and thunderstorms look to take place. It is unlikely they will turn severe or be long lasting. Likely to mimic Saturday’s conditions of brief storms and showers. These storms again look to die out heading into the early part of Sunday night, with chances of seeing an isolated thunderstorm in Cheyenne early before the Fireworks show. Sun will mainly dominate the state aside from brief moments, the heat will be right behind it. For most, the conditions are favorable for 4th of July festivities. For all though, be prepared for a brief shower or thunderstorm to pop up so keep the rain gear nearby!

Temperatures will remain in their summer domain 80s and 90s with chances in the SE corridor of Wyoming for pop-up showers and thunderstorms for the next few days. In Cheyenne a really strong chance of seeing storms on Monday.
