After a bright Monday Wyoming will continue to warm into Tuesday with high temperatures reaching the 70s. Tuesday evening is when the next weather event will move into Wyoming with rain showers before midnight and snow showers after midnight. Snow amounts will accumulate in high elevations and the mountains but likely be trace elsewhere. The pattern lately has been that rain and snow mostly skips over the Cheyenne region with the last several cold fronts and this forecast is following this trend. With those results, it is likely Cheyenne and southeast Wyoming will remain under an elevated and critical fire watch for the foreseeable future.

Tuesday night rain showers will turn to snow showers as temperatures get closer to freezing.

Cheyenne and Wyoming will have a warming trend with a midweek cool down.
