Cold and Wet
2 November 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It just seems that November is not really off to the best start in terms of weather. In the southern half of the state, temperatures began to warm up, but we were still met with overcast skies and scattered showers. The northern regions like Casper seem to be off to a much better start today with partly cloudy skies and temperatures much closer to the seasonable levels. If these kind of gloomy and cold conditions have got you down, the days will be getting much better.
For now, those overcast skies and showers will continue into the evening time, mostly sticking in the southern half of the state. I expect that some of it will turn into mixed precipitation and even snow as we cool off going into the overnight hours. Snowfall totals look to be minimal and much of it will melt away by the next day. Again, with the rain during the day and temperatures dropping off at night, watch out for black ice if you plan to be traveling. Many of the highway and interstate delays today are due to the snow melting with the rain which causes slush and low visibility. Nothing significant in terms of closures, but certainly some moderate delays. Tomorrow will be much better as the clouds will move out of the state along with all the moisture.
Because of that, temperatures will begin to warm up to more seasonable levels going into the later parts of the week. Some regions can even begin to see those 60s come back into the forecast, which is above average for this time of year. Tonight, temperatures will cool down to levels right around freezing with the chance for mixed precipitation going into those later evening hours. Tomorrow, warmer temperatures are back and most clouds will move out of the region.
