Back to Seasonable
3 December 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Temperatures began cooling off all around the state today as winds began to shift from the west to the north. The Jetstream is also slowly moving back down allowing for colder artic air to makes it way towards the northern United States. We also have a cold front on its way from the Pacific Northwest. Today, we already started to see some signs of the incoming cold front like the shifting winds and the increase in cloud cover for the northern cities. Heading into the weekend, temperatures are expected to stay around the level they are at today, above average but with a drop coming soon. Tomorrow, the northern half of the state can see more cloud cover with the chance of some very isolated rain showers during the day and very isolated snow showers during the night.
Winds today were on the calm side by Wyoming standards and even compared to the last few days. If that was the case, then why is the whole state covered in high wind watches and warnings? Believe it or not, these warnings actually don’t go into effect until tomorrow evening. Tomorrow in the late afternoon and evening, winds will pick up big time from the west as the cold front begins approaching. Because of that, I expect a number of highway and interstate closures. This will more than likely last throughout the weekend, especially when the round of snow moves through Sunday evening.
Tonight, temperatures are expected to drop back down to the position they were last night. Northern half of the state can expect increasing cloud cover. Tomorrow, highs are predicted to be the same as today if not a little bit higher. As I said before, clouds building in the northern half with the winds really picking up by the late afternoon and evening. If you have any activities or plans, try to get them done in the early parts of the day. Sunday is when we can expect highs to be in the more seasonable range with snow during the evening. I’ll post snow totals on social media.
