CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After the weather calmed down around the state, much of the same has remained the case today with the exception of the temperature. Currently, the state is being dominated by high pressure meaning very little cloud cover or precipitation chances. On top of that, there is a slight breeze coming from the southwest. Many of the warm desert states are in that direction meaning warm and dry air is coming in resulting in an increase in temperatures. Warmer conditions are expected to continue until Thursday when highs could reach the 50s and even 60s in some regions. Afterwards, another cold front will move through brining more seasonable weather along with some snow chances.

Mostly clear conditions are expected to continue throughout the week as the state is dominated by high pressure. Some clouds are expected to move into the western regions, but no precipitation chances.(Jordan Frazier)

Wind is not much of an issue right now. There are a few isolated areas with high wind warning such as the Elk Mountain and Wheatland regions. Beyond that, there are very minimal delays on the roads. Out to the far western regions, delays are higher near Pinedale and Jackson due to slick spots and black ice from the low temperatures and heavy snowfall over the past few weeks. Overall, winds will be picking up a little bit tomorrow for the central and eastern areas of the state, but nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year.

Overnight tonight, expect some clouds to be moving in from the northwest but no precipitation. Temperatures will be on the warmer side, but still reach the freezing point so be sure to watch out for patchy ice if you are driving late. Tomorrow, similar conditions to today are expected with warmer temperatures and even some stronger breezes. Still, nice conditions are expected to continue throughout the week and we will keep you updated regarding the incoming cold front for the weekend.
