CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Spring is coming at us fast with near record high temperatures for the weekend into Monday. Clouds will be in abundance thankfully to block this seasonably warm sunshine. Plan something outdoors, wear sunscreen and light clothing while winds take a break from making things difficult. There may be a couple rain showers over the Laramie Mountains Sunday afternoon but not much else besides that. Low temperatures Saturday night will be in the high 20s and mostly 30s around the state. High temperatures Sunday will be in the high 60s and 70s for most of Wyoming.
Winds are tame for your weekend. Gusts to 30mph at and near the stationary front that extends from the Wyoming northern border to the southeast corner are likely. Those are light in comparison to what we see with strong gradient winds typically. Light breezy winds will persist into Sunday around the state. It wont be until Monday when wind speeds start to increase in the southern half of the state to the mid 30mph range from the southwest ahead of the next cold front that will enter Wyoming Monday evening, Tuesday morning.
As for precipitation, there is a slight chance of a sprinkle of rain Sunday afternoon over Cheyenne and the National Parks. Not enough to disrupt any outdoor activities for too long. Monday evening more significant rain showers will move into Wyoming from the southwest. Tuesday morning the rain showers will disperse around Wyoming is an isolated fashion. Tuesday, signs of the cooler air will prevail from this front as rain showers that last late into the evening will turn into snow showers. From this point, Wyoming will have an extended cool down with high temperatures in the 40s and 50s lasting to the end of the week.
