CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After a slight cool down from an incoming cold front in the northeast today, temperatures will increase rapidly as we head into the weekend because the cold front is now turning into a warm front and going in reverse. These temperatures will increase so rapidly that it is certainly possible to get new record high temperatures across the entire state. Mostly cloudy skies will also be part of the story this weekend thanks to the wins being very calm and allowing for a lot of those clouds to gather up. The good news is a no significant precipitation is expected with the exception of the Laramie mountain region late on Saturday. Even with that in the forecast, just expect an isolated rain shower.

The wind gusts will remain in very isolated regions throughout much of this weekend. This should allow for very little travel impacts with the exception of seasonal closures. Gusts will begin to pick up on Sunday for the southern region of the state extending from Rock Springs to Laramie along the I 80 corridor. Granted, this is just going to be about 30 mph gusts and not enough to initiate some partial closures.

Overnight tonight, expect those clouds to begin building up but temperature is staying on the warm end of the spectrum with lots of upper 30s and even some lower 40s. Winds will be calming down to allowing for a lot of those clouds to begin to increase. By tomorrow, temperatures will warm up rapidly as we head into the lunch hour and afternoon with a number of high 60s and low 70s across the state. This warming trend is expected to last throughout much of Monday before a new cold front pushes through on Tuesday allowing for a drop in our temperatures and an increase in our precipitation chances.
