Cold Start to November
1 November 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Temperatures today haven’t changed too much from this time yesterday. The southern half of the state saw snow starting last evening and kept going until about the middle of today. Given how warm the temperatures have been lately, not a lot of it accumulated. Most of the roads have been clear considering much of it melted once it hit. The reason we are still seeing delays on the major highways and interstates is because of black ice and fog. Low visibility and patchy ice are causing the speed limits to drop. Good news is that the wind is minimal, so we are not seeing any blowing snow or dangerous situations for high profile vehicles. We can expect to see some more snow showers moving through for the southern half of the state starting this evening again. Just like last night, there won’t be a lot in terms of accumulation. Most models are predicting less than an inch.
There will be limited visibility so be sure to give yourself some extra time driving home this evening. Tomorrow, conditions will start warming up a little bit. Much of the weather once again will be sticking in the southern regions with rain showers and mixed precipitation during the day and snow going into the late evening hours once temperatures drop below freezing.
Tonight, lows will be below the freezing point for much of the state with the southern half seeing overcast skies and snow. Casper and northward will see mostly clear skies and little if any precipitation. Tomorrow, temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s for the state. We should start to see some snow melt during the day so keep an eye out for slush. Going into the rest of the week, the weather will warm up to more seasonable temperatures and the skies should be on the clear side.
