Beginning Of The First Cool Down
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -
Clouds keep rolling in today! Started the morning off pretty clear here in the eastern half of the state. As we head further into the day today, clouds and showers from the West will push through the state and head East. There is a broad area of clouds that will be moving over soon.
This evening the eastern half of Wyoming will see those clouds pushing over. A few showers may follow along with the movement of the clouds into the East. Overnight, the first wave of clouds will push off to the northeast. This will leave clearer conditions in the center of Wyoming, as the second wave forms along the western border. The northwestern corner will see consistent showers tomorrow, starting as soon as 7AM. As that second wave of clouds and showers move through, more of the state will have a chance of seeing some rain.
Smoke is light throughout the state today. Light smoke conditions are mostly along the eastern border and the northwestern corner. Throughout the night and into tomorrow, heavier pockets of smoke will stick along the northern border. Thursday afternoon, more light smoke will appear in the rest of Wyoming.
There is a very small area in the most northeastern corner of the state that is an area of Elevated Fire Risk. To the northeast of the corner, there is a Critical Fire Risk. With the risk of fire, there is also a Fire Weather Warning placed within the same area of that corner. This warning is in place until 7PM Wednesday (tonight).
Temperatures are ranging from the 60s to the lower 80s today. 60 degree temperatures are mostly the western and southern halves of the state, while 80 degree temperatures maintain in the northeastern corner. Tonight, low temperatures will cool into the 30s and 40s once again. Tomorrow, there will be more 60 and 70 degree high temperatures across the state.
