Wyoming Wind is Back
4 November 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Today, while being very warm for this time of year, was very nice outside. Temperatures across the state reached into the 60s with a few places hitting those lower 70s. Skies remained relatively clear, but that Wyoming wind is back in the forecast. Essentially what we are seeing a cold front moving in from the northwest. It’ll bring some slight moisture and cloud cover into that region before dying out. As it does, it’ll be bringing in strong wind gusts across the state. Right now, the southeastern corner has a few high wind watches and warnings already in effect. These breezy conditions and strong wind gusts will continue into the evening and really begin to pick up tomorrow by the afternoon.
Gusts over 30 and 40 MPH will be common in the central regions as well as the southeast. In terms of precipitation from this frontal system, it will be minimal. As I mentioned earlier, some scattered showers can be seen across the northeastern corner this evening and going into tomorrow morning. In the high elevation and mountainous areas, there is the possibility for some snow, but very little in terms of accumulation.
Tonight, temperatures will continue to stay on the warmer side with mostly 30s and 40s in the forecast; actually very similar to what we saw last night. The biggest difference is that we will see increasing cloud cover from the front but nothing in terms of moisture for many of the big cities. Tomorrow, the clouds will begin clearing out again and temperatures will continue to stay on the warm side with still those 60s and 70s in the forecast. The strong gusts will stick to the central and southeastern side of the state. Weather will not change much much over the next few days so it looks to be a nice, if not warm weekend ahead.
