CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After all the activity we had over the weekend to start off the new year, isn’t it time that we slowed down and took a rest for just a little bit? Well, that is exactly what the weather is doing. Over the next few days, there will be no moisture in the atmosphere and temperatures will be going back to above average with the 40s and 50s back in the forecast. Just as in typical Wyoming fashion, it won’t last long. Another cold front is projected to come through the state bringing along with it another round of snow by the middle of the week. Models are still in disagreement regarding total accumulation estimates so I will let you know as time gets closer.

Wind gusts seem to be the only significant weather we have coming through over the next few days. While the southern regions are left with mostly to partly cloudy skies, the central regions can see very little cloud cover thanks to the strong gusts. Tomorrow, gusts are expected to reach over 40 MPH in certain areas causing those trash cans to end up in your neighbors yard. It is certainly possible that the winds will pick up some of the snow causing a number of travel delays due to low visibility and even some ground blizzards.

Strong gusts are going to be prevalent in the central areas tomorrow with gusts getting above 40 MPH and possibly causing some traffic delays.(Jordan Frazier)

Overnight tonight, those clouds will be moving into the southern areas while temperatures will get to above average. Lows are expected to be in the 20s for the east and single digits for the west. Tomorrow, windy for central areas like Casper but warmer all around with a number of 40s in the forecast and even some 50s out into the Nebraska panhandle. We will keep you updated regarding the winter storm expected on Wednesday.
