CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming is finally starting to break from its cold spell as we continue to warm up over the weekend into this week. Some parts of the state will reach as high as the 60s by mid-week. Breezy conditions in the Wyoming southeast quadrant will persist day and night from the mid 20s to mid 30s mph for the next few days.

This is the start of a warming trend we will see over the next few days over the state.

Breezy winds never stop in Wyoming. Luckily, they are not very strong the next few days by Wyoming standards. The southeast quadrant of the state is forecasted to have the highest wind speeds around the Laramie and Medicine Bow Mountains. This will persist for the next few days.

Breezy winds will stick around the southeast quadrant of the state day and night for the next few days. Mid 20s to mid 30s mph is the forecast. There may be road closures from Elk Mountain to south of Casper as we typically see for high profile vehicles.(Ryan Shollenberger)

Temperatures are on a steady increase from here for awhile. We will see 40s, 50s, and even 60s in some parts through Thursday as we gradually warm. Low temperatures will increase as well over the next few days from the teens and 20s to 20s and 30s by mid week. We will see a good amount of snow and ice melt off the roads making favorable driving conditions for the remaining of the weekend and into this week. Minimal clouds will be present over the next few days with exception for the southwest corner, National Park area, that will incur snow showers Monday night into Tuesday morning. There is a slight chance of isolated showers over the northern Wyoming state border at this time as well but will stay mostly in Montana.
