Wyoming’s Warming Up For The Weekend
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming reached the 40s and 50s that we wanted to see after a cold week of snow and ice. Look for this warming trend to continue for the next several days getting closer to the 50s as the first day of spring is nearing. There is a slight chance of isolated rain and snow showers late Sunday but won’t be more than an isolated sprinkle of rain or snow dusting as it passes depending on the time and temperature.
High pressure builds over the Western 4 Corners region bringing Wyoming an influx of warm air. This will help block out the next shallow cold front sweeping across Wyoming Sunday. The high pressure system will not allow the cold front to deepen nor provide abundant moisture to give us more snow than we’ve typically seen with the last several cold fronts. This gives Wyoming the slight drop in temperatures Monday before we jet back up again Tuesday nearly to the 60s. Warmer temperatures the next several days across Wyoming will feel spring-like a week before its official start. That’s good news as a year ago was the start of the historic Cheyenne blizzard that dropped 3 feet of snow leaving us to dig ourselves out for days after.
Typical Wyoming winds will decrease but not be forgotten as breezy conditions will persist for the eastern half of the state in the 30s mph range from the west Sunday. It won’t be until late Monday when the higher winds push east into Nebraska and generally subside. Until then, expect road conditions to refreeze overnight but continue to melt Sunday with warming temperatures alleviating the delays, closures, and partial closures in the southeast quadrant of the state.
