CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We started off on the warm side as those clouds began rolling through the state. Temperatures began dropping ever since and there is lots of rain on the radar. Some areas are seeing lots of rain while others are seeing very little. That just tends to be the case when the rain comes from the west, even when it is a strong cold front. Most of the snow we are seeing is still sticking to the higher elevations and mountains. As we go into the overnight hours, that can change up a little as temperatures continue to drop around the state. I do not see many of the cities getting any significant snow accumulation but some mixed precipitation and flurries are possible in the evening hours. Tomorrow will stay on the cooler side because of the front, but much of the rain looks to be out of the state by then. There is still expected to be some snow in the mountains out to the far west and southeast with the chance for an isolated shower in the far north cities.

Wind continues to be one of the biggest factors regarding this cold front. Gusts have shifted from southerly to northerly as the system moves throughout. Speeds are over 40 to 50 MPH in some locations causing some delays in traffic on the highways and interstates. Unfortunately, even after the front passes, we can still see very strong winds and breezy conditions throughout the state tomorrow and even on Thursday. Because it is cold air from the north, temperatures will be relatively cool for the next few days.

Tonight, expect the last bit of showers and snow to move through before clearing up. Temperatures will drop down to more seasonable levels with a number of cities going below the freezing mark. Tomorrow, some lingering clouds will be left over and the wind will stay with us for the next few days. temperatures look to be in the 50s for the major cities and the 40s for the higher elevations.
