CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Light snow showers are leaving Wyoming behind the last frontal system as it pushes east. We had 1-2 inches of snow reported in Cheyenne and Casper. The sky opened up and it was warm enough to let some sun in and start to melt the freshly fallen snow. High temperatures were above freezing today. Wyoming will warm up quickly tomorrow bringing those spring-like temperatures of the 40s and 50s back for the end of the week and into the weekend. Low temperatures will be closer to freezing instead of the low 20s or colder this evening.

Winds are not an issue currently after the last brief winter passing. However, breezy conditions will return to south and southeast Wyoming by Friday afternoon with gusts up to 30mph as wind direction shifts from the north to the west partly responsible for the warm-up. These conditions will persist for the next few days. Partly cloudy conditions will fill the skies but will be mostly sunny until late Sunday when the next cold front approaches.

Wyoming will not see inclement weather until late Sunday and early Monday. More moisture is associated with the next frontal system. Snow is forecasted with the timing and forecasted temperatures. The cold air push will stick around a couple days more similar to the winter storms we are used to. Not terrible considering Sunday is the first day of Spring.

Wyoming will warm over the next few days. We will start next week with the next weather event.
