Some Flurries Today, Warming Up Afterwards
14 October 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The cool temperatures and overcast look to be sticking around today. Radar is showing scattered snow showers throughout the state but nothing significant in terms of accumulation. If this winter is too early for you, there is no need to worry. Temperatures will begin warming up going into the weekend and the clouds will begin clearing out. This is actually due to a high pressure system moving in from the west. The northern regions of the state will see less significant changes in temperature, but still warm enough that it would be a nice day if you plan on going outside.
Wind looks to be back in the forecast. As the high pressure system begin moving through, strong wind gusts of 30-40 MPH will hit the southern regions of the state. I do not suspect any road closures as a result because there is very little snow to impede travel. The downside is that high school football week 7 is tomorrow. If you plan on attending any of the games, I suggest bringing a jacket as kickoff times will be in the 40s and will drop to the freezing point quickly once the sun sets. On top of that, the wind gusts will make the “feels like” temperatures even lower. I certainly hope the wind doesn’t affect the games too much.
Going into the overnight hours, most places will see temperatures drop below freezing once again. My only concern is that the flurries will melt causing some slick roads to turn icy going into the late evening hours. Beyond that, tomorrow will be slightly warmer, but still below average, with a lot of those clouds moving out. Just keep in mind the wind and pack a jacket if you plan to spend any significant time outside.
