CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Record warmth verified across Wyoming in at least half a dozen cities Sunday. A repeat Monday is not out of the question. Get some fresh air Monday before the next weather system arriving Tuesday that will cool us down to high temperatures in the 40s and 50s for the remaining days of the week. Lows will sink to below freezing in the 20s throughout the state.

Breezy winds are returning Monday when winds shift from the southwest. The southern half of Wyoming will have winds nearing 30mph. Tuesday morning the wind gusts will migrate to the eastern half with the same wind speeds around 30mph. Additionally at this time, a frontal boundary will be making its way across the state from the north starting the shift of wind direction as it passes. By Tuesday late afternoon, winds from the north will be the prevailing wind direction with increases in wind speeds over 40mph in the north and northeastern quadrants.

Winds will shift from the SW and increase to 30mph in many cities around the state.

Weather Tuesday will impact everyone in the state. A mix of weather elements will include rain and snow showers with potential isolated thunderstorms. Emphasis on thunderstorms is in western and south Wyoming at this time. Tuesday morning and afternoon isolated rain showers will dominate the landscape. It wont be until the later afternoon and evening that temperatures will decrease enough to turn to snow, if at all. Currently, snowfall measurements are small to winter comparisons. Over 2 inches in Laramie, close to 2 inches in Cheyenne, a few cities around 1 inch with many less than 1 inch of snow. The snowfall may not stick initially either since we are still coming down from those warm temperatures. Road conditions will likely degrade by Wednesday morning when precipitation freezes.
