CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Another warm day for this time of year in the Cowboy State. Luckily, it wasn’t as hot it was yesterday as most places weren’t near setting any new records. Today was just as breezy too with the winds beginning to calm down going into the evening hours. The biggest change we saw was the shift in the winds. As the new cold front moved through the state, winds came from the north instead of the west. As a result, much cooler air began moving through. Breezy conditions are expected to remain throughout tomorrow, but not near as strong as what we’ve seen over the past few days. As a matter of fact, tomorrow evening looks to be calm in terms of wind based on what has been the normal over the last few days.

Interestingly enough, we tend to see lots of showers, storms, snow, or all of the above when a strong cold front moves in. This was not the case this time as the front didn’t carry with it a lot of moisture. At most, some areas did see an isolated sprinkle or snow flurry, but nothing out of the ordinary. Clouds moving through quickly with the help of the strong winds, but they should be clearing out by early tomorrow around the midday to afternoon hours.

With the help of the cold front pushing out all of the clouds and remaining moisture, expect clear skies tomorrow starting around the lunch hour.(Jordan Frazier)

Tonight, we can see the effects of the cold front taking place as temperatures are expected to quickly drop off with most of the cities seeing the 10s and 20s. Tomorrow, calmer winds, clearer skies and cooler temperatures. Highs sticking in the 30s for much of the state. If you don’t like the cold temperatures, you’re in luck. The effects from the front are expected to be short lived and we should begin gradually warming back up to the 50s by the end of the week.

While the coldest temperatures will be overnight tonight, tomorrow highs aren't much better...
