Big Warm Up
28 January 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Once you get rid of the clouds, allow high pressure to move in, and have strong winds from the west, it is amazing how quickly temperatures can warm up to. Throughout today, the warming allowed for a lot of the snow to melt, resulting in slushy conditions. While it may not be the prettiest thing, we can expect this pattern of warming to continue going into the weekend. Some places already reached up to the 40s and by tomorrow, it’s possible they’ll be in the 50s.
The winds will stay on the stronger side for the rest of tonight and tomorrow. Most of it will stick to the eastern and central regions of the state with gusts getting up to 30 and 40 MPH. It can certainly get stronger in isolated areas so be sure to watch out for partial closures and delays regarding the wind. Most of the delays we are seeing now are due to blowing snow and slushy conditions.
As we head into the overnight hours, temperatures will stay below freezing, so be sure to take it slow and watch out for patchy ice. Skies will remain clear so it is the perfect time to go stargazing. Tomorrow, the only thing that will change will be the temperatures. Warmer conditions are expected so it’ll be a nice day to spend it outside at a park. Much of the weekend will be like this until clouds start moving in on Monday and the next frontal system brings down those temperatures and ups our snow chances.
