Warm and Windy
19 December 2021
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After much of last week was on the chilly side, but seasonable for this time of year, don’t expect similar weather this week. Temperatures are warming back up with those breezy conditions sticking around to help it feel more seasonable. The next cool down doesn’t look to come around until either Christmas Eve or Christmas depending on where you are in the state at the time. Today, we saw mostly cloudy skies throughout the state, but much of that will begin moving out going into the evening hours. Clouds will be moving in and out throughout the day tomorrow as the wind carries it along. The only chances for precipitation will be out to the far northwestern regions including cities like Jackson and Yellowstone.
Speaking of the winds, it’ll be on the breezy side for much of this week, especially for the central and southern areas of the state. Gusts will certainly get windy up to 40 MPH and even higher in isolated regions near the mountain ranges. As a result, there will certainly be road delays, but nothing too significant to impede on any holiday travel plans you may have. That is unless you were planning to take and RV or trailer. In that case, some regions will have partial closures due to strong gusts, such as near Elk Mountain.
Overnight tonight, temperatures will be above average once again with most of the larger cities staying above the freezing point. Clouds will be moving out and the breeze will be calming down. Tomorrow, the breeze will continue and really begin picking up going into the overnight hours tomorrow. Temperatures will be on the warmer side with highs in the 30s, 40s and 50s. This will be the case for much of this week with warmer temperatures, breeze conditions and very little in terms of precipitation.
