CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We wrap up a mostly favorable weather weekend across Wyoming. The few isolated snow and rain showers will diminish and push east into Sunday evening and mostly clear by Monday morning. Lows Monday morning will be at or below freezing with 20s and upper teens out west. Parts of Wyoming will feel a small drop in high temperatures in the 30s, 40s, and 50s behind this brief weaker weather event but warm up quickly after.

A wind watch is in effect for Platte, Laramie, Albany and Carbon county until Wednesday at 12am for the wind gusts up to the mid 30s mph in this region. These sub-warning level winds will stick around the southeast quadrant of Wyoming as our typical hot spot for higher wind speeds coming off the mountains. This could lead to degraded road conditions with some delays especially for high profile vehicles along I-25 north to Wheatland and I-80 west from Cheyenne to Elk Mountain.

Wind gusts in the mid 30s mph will linger for the next few days.

These early spring-like temperatures will stick around for the week even after a mixed rain and snow event by mid-week. More clouds are forecasted to return by that time as snow will fall in the mountains and generally higher elevations with rain for lower elevations and daytime temperatures. Spring is ramping up for a week of 40s and 50s for the entire week. Much different than the start of the Cheyenne blizzard that started a year ago today.

As spring takes a stronger hold we will have more mixed precipitation events in the future.
