Winds will be harsh for the Cheyenne area Sunday. Expect traffic delays in all directions in southeast Wyoming along I-80 and I-25 and include the Elk Mountain region. Reduced speed limits for highway travel are likely. Wind speeds will decrease into the Sunday late afternoon/evening hours. Besides the winds, the road conditions themselves should be fine with limited rain and snow this evening/morning and Sunday temperatures rising to the 40s and 50s for much of Wyoming. The warming trend will continue into the week as the 60s and 70s are not far away.

Monday will be a beautiful day to be outside with plenty of sunshine, few clouds and low wind speeds. Tuesday and Wednesday are primed for continued warmth with some Wyoming breezes to keep the heat off us during that time. Showers aren’t forecasted again until Wednesday morning with a slight cool down for the day.

Warming throughout the week will take place.
