CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After a cold start to the weekend, temperatures are now warming back up into the 40s and 50s today with very little in terms of precipitation. This warming trend is expected to continue going towards the middle of the week when the next cold front is expected to move through. Until then, precipitation will be staying in the far western and northwestern regions. Places like Jackson and Yellowstone can expect to see scattered snow showers throughout the week. Tomorrow, many of the big cities can expect to see mostly clear skies with no chances of rain or snow.

After a windy weekend, gusts will remain in the central regions of the state but gusts are not expected to be that strong, only reaching about 30 MPH.(Jordan Frazier)

Overnight tonight, temperatures will be on the warmer side after the above average temperatures we experienced during the day. Due to highs being above freezing today and the snow starting to melt away, be sure to watch out for patchy ice as temperatures drop back down. Tomorrow, highs will be above average once again with 40s and 50s around the state and some 30s out to the far west. Partly cloudy skies and some breezy conditions in the central regions. Temperatures will continue warming going toward Wednesday, when the next cold front will come through bringing another round of snow and colder temperatures throughout the Cowboy State.
