Winds Calming Down
6 April 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It was another cool and gusty day across much of the Cowboy State today as the weather from the cold front is taking a bit to move out. The good news is that the winds are slowly calming down as we head into the second half of the week. There were a few isolated rain and snow showers across the eastern half of the the state, but they were small and moved through very quickly with the help of the strong wind from the northwest. It also helped to move out the leftover clouds too, leaving us with mostly clear skies as we head into the overnight hours and tomorrow. With the lack of cloud cover and shower activity, temperatures will begin warming up rapidly as we approach the end of the week and weekend.
Those strong winds will be starting to calm down overnight tonight and just sticking to the far eastern side of the state throughout tomorrow. It will calm down enough that the National Weather Service has already pushed all the high wind warnings out of the state, but they still remain in the Nebraska panhandle and South Dakota. Gusts tomorrow can reach over 40 MPH with some more localized areas getting even stronger bursts. These winds will be pushing out the last of the clouds and showers tomorrow resulting in clear skies over the next few days.
Overnight tonight, temperatures will cool down to seasonable levels with mid to upper 20s in the forecast. Mostly clear skies are expected with the exception of the mountain ranges which can expect some isolated snow showers. Tomorrow, there will be some clouds in the eastern side of the state with some strong gusts, but those gusts will be moving the clouds out of region leaving us with clear skies for the evening. High temperatures will be warming up slightly with them ranging from the upper 40s to the lower 50s. Friday and Saturday look to be the best days as skies will remain clear, winds will remain calm, and temperatures will warm up into the 60s and 70s.
