CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With that cold front creeping through our state, we are seeing pretty cool temperatures today. High all over our state were mostly in the 70s, with a couple outliers reaching the low 80s and a couple dipping into the 60s.

Today we're still seeing some cool, fall-like temperatures across the state.

Because of this low pressure system and cold front hovering over the cowboy state, there is the slight possibility of showers or even the rumble of thunder overhead along the I-25 corridor and over Laramie as well.

Because we’re seeing relatively light smoke covering the state today, we currently don’t have any air quality alerts. However, by tomorrow evening, a lot of that heavier smoke will be settling back over our region so we may see those alerts returning in the next couple of days. By early Monday morning, much of the state will be covered in some heavier smoke.

Winds will be increasing tomorrow morning.

Satellite and Radar shows we saw clear skies for most of the state with some clouds sweep in over the northern region. The futurecast shows some clouds crossing over our state but they don’t present much of a threat or hold any promise for much precipitation over the next few days. Other than some wind speeds increasing into the evening hours of tonight and tomorrow night, we can expect some quiet weather over this Labor Day weekend.

Lows tonight will be mostly in the 40s across the state with some 50s making an appearance in the southeastern corner some sprinkled in the northern region. We will also see some lows in the 30s in the west and northwest.

It will be warming up all across the state tomorrow.

We’ll be warming up a bit more tomorrow with the state being dominated mostly by 80s and Sheridan topping out at 90 degrees, and we will also being seeing a lot of clear skies tomorrow as well.

The rest of the week is looking quiet and warm, but a disturbance is showing in long-range models which indicate that our next chance for precipitation could be next Monday, but at this time, confidence remains low.
