CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A windy Sunday dominated much of the southern border cities of Wyoming causing delays along I-80 and I-25 west and east of Cheyenne, respectively. A 58mph gust at the Cheyenne airport will do that. Wind speeds will decrease into the evening and remain breezy until midnight. Temperatures took a plunge today compared to yesterday well below Aprils monthly average. Isolated rain and snow showers across the state are diminishing Sunday into the afternoon and evening to give us some clearing for a short while. Low temperatures will be in the 20s throughout Wyoming Monday morning.

Monday high temperatures will warm by 10F allowing any snowfall to the north melt to improve road conditions reaching the 40s and 50s in central and eastern Wyoming. While we get a short break Monday morning it won’t be long until some more weather picks up across the state. Breezy winds will return as early as the late morning hours along the southern border once again reaching up to 30mph from the south. In the early afternoon, isolated rain and snow showers will start in eastern Wyoming. These showers will build into Monday evening becoming snow showers with the approaching cold front.

Winds will shift from the southwest at the southern border and gust up to 30mph.

Tuesday more weather is forecasted as another cold front moves through Wyoming. Strong winds along the frontal boundary with moisture in the vicinity will bring higher snow totals to the west and north of Wyoming to exceed half a foot. From Laramie to Newcastle and the southeast will be skipped over again in the rain and snow category as showers advect to the north in Montana and North Dakota due to occluded frontal boundary blocking any southerly moisture advection.

The northwest half of Wyoming will receive much of the snowfall from the next cold front.
