CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Today was noticeably warmer than what we’ve seen over the last few days with winds being calmer and skies being clearer. It is hard to tell that more rain and snow showers are in the forecast for tomorrow. The stalled out front over the state is still churning up moisture with the worst of it impacting the western side of the state. Heavy snow showers are expected for cities like Yellowstone and Jackson which is why they have Winter Weather Advisories in effect. Those showers will move across the state from the west throughout the day tomorrow. It’ll start off as snow in the early morning hours when temperatures are below freezing and turn into rain by the afternoon once the high’s are reached. Unfortunately, these showers look to continue into the weekend as well, but at least they are not expected to bring any significant snow accumulation or flooding.

Strong gusts will subside as we go into the late evening and overnight hours before picking up again tomorrow during the day. Significant wind gusts are not expected until the showers in the afternoon on Saturday, which will affect much of the state.

Overnight tonight, temperatures are continuing the general warming trend with most of the state being in the teens and 20s. Clouds will begin building and snow showers will be pushing in from the west. Tomorrow, scattered snow and rain showers will continue throughout the day so be sure to keep that jacket and umbrella handy. High temperatures will be the warmest in the southeast with low 50s in the forecast and the northern cities still struggling to get above freezing with high 20s forecasted. Extended forecast is showing strong winds back for this weekend, but those warm temperatures look to stick around for a longer period of time.
