Staying Cool With More Rain Coming
By: Jordan Frazier
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Cooler conditions across the state, when compared to earlier in the week. Believe it or not, this is what we should be seeing this time of year based on almanac data. This year has just been abnormally hot and the smoke certainly isn’t helping out. Speaking of which, much of the state is under air quality warnings as the thick moved back in from the west.
The only areas staying clear are near the eastern border. That is not to say they didn’t see any haze, just not bad enough to issue new warnings. The cold front we have been watching is slowly moving down the state. It is currently over the central regions and, as a result, there is a marginal for severe storms. We have seen a few already, but they were mostly due to the strong winds of the front and storms rather than the storms itself. The whole state today has the chance for seeing some isolated showers and more so tomorrow. Wind gusts are the biggest threat today as they will be combining with the front and storms.
Gusts over 50 MPH in some places will be possible so be sure to remain weather aware. Tomorrow, the severe weather risk will move the east side of the state as the front continues to move through. The chance for small hail will be there as well for much of the eastern border. Tonight, just like last night, will not cool down as much due to heavy cloud cover and isolated showers. Temperatures will be in the 50s for the most part with 40s in the higher elevations and 30s out to the west. Tomorrow, temperatures will be slightly cooler than today because the cold front would have made up some ground. Mostly 70s across the board with a few 80s scattered in. Again, plan to bring an umbrella or rain coat tomorrow as we can expect storms. Going into the weekend, the cool temperatures will stick around for a little bit, and we can see much clearer skies.
