CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With no nearby weather systems, we saw lots of clear skies and very hot temperatures all around the state today. Temperatures were well above average with some areas trying to hit the triple digits. This is certainly not helping our current warning map as we are littered with fire weather warnings and air quality warnings.

That heavy smoke looks to be sticking around based on smoke forecast until the later parts of tomorrow evening, prompting some of those air quality warnings to be sticking around for a little bit longer. Not too much in terms of rain either considering we only saw some isolated showers for the northwestern region of the state. That trough that was dominating our region yesterday has moved off to the east leaving us dry for the next few days. We are still keeping our eyes on the cold front trying to make it’s way into Montana from Canada which will be increasing our rain chances and cooling us off later in the week by around Wednesday and into Thursday.

Tomorrow, we can expect to see some more rain coverage with just a small chance of precipitation, mostly toward the western and southern portions of the state. Nothing in terms of severe is expected as the Storm Prediction Center just has the state under general thunderstorm risk. Going into the overnight hours, those temperatures will stay in the 60s for much of the state. Tomorrow will be one of the hottest days of the week with lots of 90s and even a number of triple digits around the state. We could use that cold front now more than ever!
