Warm Weekend Temperatures Followed by Mid-Week Snow
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We are enjoying another wonderful weekend with warming temperatures as the last cold front and snow showers passed through the state last night. High temperatures the next couple days will be in the 50′s near the eastern border, 40′s in central and 30′s in the west. Lows are mostly in the 20′s and even colder in the mountainous terrain.
Sunday, breezy conditions will persist in eastern Wyoming with westerly winds gusting up to 40mph in Cheyenne and up to 30mph along the eastern state border. By Monday, the winds will shift and come from the south bringing warm air and wind gusts to the mid 30s in the south central part of the state. Winds will persist from this direction until the next cold front arrives in the middle of this week. Cloud coverage is minimal Sunday. It won’t be until Monday when we see clouds fill in from the west ahead of the next frontal system.
Tuesday we will start to see the next cold front work its way into the west and northwest portion of Wyoming. It’s early in the model runs, but preliminary data shows 2-3 inches of snowfall in the mountainous terrain while Cheyenne is expecting near 1-2 inches. It isn’t until Wednesday when we will see the cold air behind the front settle in over the Equality State. Because of this we will watch to see when it it cold enough for the snowfall to stick to the ground as that could more a criteria for how much our statewide snowfall measurements will amount to.
