CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We saw much needed improvements in our weather conditions with much warmer temperatures, calm winds and clear skies. Unfortunately, like all good things, they do not last forever. There is a cold front moving in from the west starting tomorrow evening. Temperatures will be warm throughout much of the day with high in the 60s and 70s, but clouds will begin building and showers will start forming in the northern regions during the morning hours. This’ll slowly move over to the central and southern regions by the late afternoon and early evening. It will start off as rain with some areas expecting heavy showers, and eventually turn into snow as temperatures during the night drop to below freezing levels. The heaviest of the snow will be in the northern central areas of the state like Casper and Buffalo, which can see those snow showers lasting well into Sunday. With that in mind, snow accumulation estimates are ranging from 2 to 3 inches for those areas while other places like Cheyenne, Riverton, and Laramie can expect about an inch at the most.

On top of cooler temperatures and more shower activity, winds will be picking up as well. Tomorrow will start off calm, but strong gusts from the west will begin moving in during the afternoon showers getting up to 30-35 MPH. The strongest of the gusts are expected on Sunday where they can get up to over 40 MPH. Expect something similar to what we saw over the last few days in terms of winds, but not as drawn out and not as powerful.

Overnight tonight, expect temperatures to stay on the warm side with lows in the high 30s and mid 40s. Certainly warmer than the last few nights, but that is to be expected as clouds will begin building resulting in the daytime heat to get trapped in the cloud layer. Tomorrow, expect highs to start off warm and then quickly drop off when the cold front and showers move through. Temperatures will drop off just as quickly as we saw them warm up today. Over the next few days, temperatures will be chilly, precipitation chances will be up and the wind is blowing back into the picture. I just hope you were able to enjoy this evening and enjoy tomorrow morning before the weather turns ugly.
