CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Temperatures today have finally fallen to more seasonable conditions. All it took was a strong enough cold front and some rain. That rain, first off, is helping to clear out the smoke in our region. The only air quality alerts left in effect are out to the far west as they are not seeing a lot of rain from this system. Unfortunately, this doesn’t look like it will last long as the moderate smoke is coming back into the big cities by tomorrow evening.

What this system is attempting to do is help out our drought situation. More than likely, we will not see much change in the drought monitor as it is supposed to come out tomorrow morning. Much of the precipitation from this front will take place during the overnight hours tonight. With that said, this cold front is slowly starting to stall out which is why we can expect the rain to be a multiple day event.

We could really use the rain, but that increase in cloud cover too is helping to keep temperatures around the state in the lower 80s and upper 70s throughout the region. Winds will be on the stronger side as the storms make their way through; however, there is no definitive pattern that we can follow over the next few days. What I can say is that a lot of these storms are coming from the southwest, so some areas may see less rain due to the storms having to travel over the mountains first. Tonight, temperatures will be in the 50s for most areas with some 40s for the higher elevations. There won’t be significant cool down due to the amount of rain expected overnight. Tomorrow, temperatures will be similar to what they were today, 70s and 80s scattered about much of the state with the chance for some isolated showers. For now, it looks like the chance of rain sticks until the weekend comes along. By then, cooler and more seasonable temperatures with mostly clear skies.
