CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It is turning out to be a calm day in Wyoming in terms of weather. Still a little on the warmer side with the northern regions of the state hitting the mid 90s in terms of highs. There is still an air quality warning out for the western part of the state and that is due to the continued burning of the wildfire out in Yellowstone.

The winds from the west over the past few days have been strong enough that much of Casper has been seeing the smoke throughout much of the weekend. The smoke itself can actually be seen on the satellite image. In terms of precipitation, there is a possibility that the northern most cities of Wyoming such as Sheridan and Gillette can expect an isolated shower this evening. Tomorrow, that shower activity moves to the southern most cities of Wyoming such as Rock Springs and Cheyenne. Storm Prediction Center only has a general thunderstorm risk in effect so there should be nothing more than some strong wind gusts and heavy rain. The reason for this rain is a cold front that will be moving through the state in the early parts of this week, leaving us with some cooler temperatures.

Tonight we can expect mostly clear skies across much of the state with the lows remaining in the 50s and 60s. Tomorrow, the heat will stay with us for a little bit with most areas seeing above average high, but nothing quite near the extreme heat of last week. Over the next few days, rain chances increase as that front begins making its way through, but it’ll leave us with cooler temperatures and drier conditions.
