Cooler Start to the Week
7 November 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Today we saw temperatures getting well above average to the point we almost hit the record high heat in the capital city today. That will be changing starting overnight tonight. We have a cold front moving through that will be dropping temperatures back to more seasonable temperatures. The front itself will be stalling out after it passes the southern border of the state leaving us with those cool conditions for much of this week. First things first, the clouds are moving into the central region of the state with the chance for isolated rain showers and even some isolated snow showers for the mountains. Scattered showers and snow look to continue as a diagonal line stretching from the southwestern corner to the northeastern corner.
Winds are relatively calm, especially given that a front is moving through. Given that the cold front is stalling out, we won’t see any significant wind gusts until later in the week. Because of that, temperatures are not going to be dropping that much. It will be more of a gradual drop going into the middle of the week.
Tonight, we can start to see those temperatures dropping all around the state, especially in the northwestern corner where the front has already moved through. Places around Yellowstone will be in the teens overnight while much of the big cities will see temperatures close to or below the freezing mark. Tomorrow, conditions will cool off a good 20 degrees compared to what we saw today. Clouds will be back in the forecast and the chances for isolated showers will remain in the central regions. Some models are showing the chance for snow in the big cities around Veterans Day, so I will release some estimates once we get closer.
