CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After the cold front moved through last night, temperatures took a big dip compared to earlier in the week when we got near record high temperatures. Lots of scattered snow showers throughout the state this morning, but not a whole lot in terms of accumulation. Wyoming winds were also back bring down our “feels like” temperatures all around. Just like all the previous cold fronts of this season, these cooler temperatures were just not meant to last. Warmer air from behind it in the west will be causing temperatures to shoot back up into the 50s and 60s going into the weekend and even next week.

It’ll take another cold front at this point to see those highs get down to more seasonable levels. Sky conditions look to be great for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Much of the moisture and cloud cover we saw today will be moving out leaving us with nice clear skies throughout much of the state.

Wind will also stick around for a little bit, but only in the central and southeastern corners of the state. Nothing too major as gusts are expected to get up to about 40 MPH by the early parts of tomorrow afternoon. Enough to exercise caution, but not enough for any significant road closures.

Tonight, big dip in temperatures as much of the region can expect those 20s, 10s, and even single digits. Clouds will begin clearing out but be sure to keep an eye out for any patchy ice on the roads if you are out travelling late or early tomorrow morning. Speaking of tomorrow, windy, but clear in terms of weather. Temperatures warming up into those 40s and 50s around many of the big cities. Overall, it looks like a nice Thanksgiving ahead.
