CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After a very warm weekend, we started our week off with another round of record-breaking temperatures. Unfortunately, winter is not quite finished with us just yet. A strong cold front coming in from the north is expected to bring heavy rain and snow showers throughout much of tomorrow. Expect temperatures to drop anywhere from 20 to 30 degrees from what we saw today. The good news is that most models are projecting less than an inch and a half of snow for many of the major cities. This is because temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s resulting in many of the showers being rain. As we slowly move into the overnight hours and temperatures drop below freezing, expect that rain to turn into snow causing some very slick road conditions on top of it.

Winds will also be shifting and coming in from the north resulting in some lower wind chills. While that is nothing out of the ordinary, expect really strong wind gusts throughout much of the eastern side of Wyoming with gas getting up to about 40 mph or even higher. The strong gusts look to continue over the next 48 hours, so be sure to bundle up if you have any plans during the evening time. Travel impacts are expected to increase due to strong winds, patchy ice and low visibility conditions. Before the front pushes through entirely, temperatures will remain well above average.

Overnight tonight, lows will remain in the 40s for much of the region because of the increase in cloud cover. By tomorrow, highs are expected to increase just slightly from the overnight lows. Widespread rain and snow showers are expected throughout the day and overnight temperatures tomorrow dropping well below the freezing point. This pattern looks to continue throughout much of the week as another cold front will be coming in from the west on Thursday and Friday. It looks like the next warm-up won’t be until next week.
