CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After the big cold blast from the cold front yesterday, we saw most of those cooler temperatures sticking around throughout today with the lows in the morning being at the teens or lower. Temperatures warmed up a little bit going into the evening hours as the stalled out cold front is slowly becoming a warm front and moving to the northeast. Strong winds from the southwest are also helping to bring in warmer air. In terms of precipitation, the most we can see over the next few days is just some isolated snow showers in the mountains to the west of Laramie, to the west of Sheridan, and in the northwest near Jackson and Yellowstone. Clouds will begin to dissipate and snow chances dwindle going into the middle of the week before the next cold front comes through.
Gusts were prevalent yesterday as the wind chills got some cities into the negatives for “feels like” temperatures. Breezy conditions will remain tomorrow but just sticking into the central and southern regions of the state with the gusts staying around 40 MPH. I do suspect that there will be some highway and interstate delays with possible partial closures near Elk Mountain.
Tonight, temperatures will be warmer than what we saw last night but be more on the seasonable side. Partly cloudy skies will be the case with strong gusts coming from the west southwest in the southeastern area of the state. Tomorrow, partly cloudy skies will remain and temperatures will be warmer with more areas seeing those upper 30s and middle 40s for the highs. Wednesday is expected to be even warmer with 50s in the forecast, but much cooler conditions following right behind.
