Showers and Storms Sticking Around
By: Jordan Frazier
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Thanks to the showers and storms, it was actually a relatively cool day outside. Highs around the state stayed in the 80s with only a few places seeing the low 90s. Still fire weather warnings and air quality warnings in effect for the western and southern border of the state. These shouldn’t last very long considering the rain should help calm down the smoke and wildfires. Severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for the eastern portion of the state with a few warnings for those areas being impacted by these strong storms. Just like last week, these storms are strong and fast moving. SPC has dropped the risk down to slight risk for the northeast corner for the overnight hours. There is still the chance that these storms can have damaging winds, large hail, lightning, heavy rain, and even an isolated tornado.
This is due to the cold front turned stationary over the state. It is being accompanied by a low pressure system and trough to our north. Basically, it means that we can see lots of rain and storms for the next couple days. For tomorrow, we can expect much of the southern regions of the state to see more rain activity. Nothing on the severe side as the Storm Prediction Center only has a general thunderstorm risk. For tonight, expect some scattered showers and storms to stick around, but temperatures will drop off into the low to mid 50s. In terms of temperatures for tomorrow, still remaining cool as cloud cover will prevent us from getting too hot.
