CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It started off as a nice day today with the sun shining and temperatures getting up to the 50s and 60s across much of the state. Although, it didn’t last long as cloud cover came in and the rain and snow showers followed. While the cold front itself is not expected to drop off temperatures all that much, it was expected to bring in a good amount of moisture throughout the state. These rain showers will eventually turn into snow showers as we get below the freezing point overnight tonight. Most of the moisture will move out to the east with the chance of some isolated rain and snow showers during the morning hours tomorrow. After that, high-pressure begins pushing in from the north west helping to clear out any kind of showers or cloud cover until Sunday. That means we can expect mostly clear skies in a quick warm up as we had into Saturday.

By Saturday, winds will begin picking up significantly from the west. Wind gusts will get up to 40 mph and more throughout much of the state as another cold front is expected to push in from the west. This one is expected to be very similar to the one we are getting right now. Not much of a drop in temperature is expected, but more of a rainmaker it will be.

Overnight tonight, the showers will continue moving toward the eastern side of the state and become more isolated as we had into tomorrow morning. Low temperatures are expected to be in the upper 20s and lower 30s resulting in some possible snow accumulation due to the below freezing temperatures. By tomorrow, most of the shower activity should clear out by the afternoon and the clouds will move along with them. High temperatures will be a little bit cooler than what we saw today with most places being in the upper 40s and a few 50s scattered in. This is slightly below average for this time of year, but nothing unbearable. As we head into the weekend and into early next week, the roller coaster of temperatures and precipitation chances continues as one cold front after another moves in.

This frontal system will bring a quick cool down, but it brought more moisture into the region...
