CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It was hard to tell that a cold front came through last night given that the skies remained clear throughout the day and the temperatures did not drop all that much compared to yesterday. What was noticeable was the strong wind gusts coming from the west. Other than bringing a few moderate travel impacts to the interstates and highways, not much seemed out the ordinary today. Tomorrow, change will be brewing as a new and much stronger cold front is expected to push through over the weekend. Clouds will begin increasing during the afternoon with some isolated rain and snow showers taking place in the far western regions.

Another change expected tomorrow is the change in wind direction. Starting in the morning, they will begin coming in from the south. This will help to fuel warmer air into the state and also warmer air into the next front. Because of this, temperatures will warm up drastically getting into the upper 60s and 70s and cause a lot more atmospheric instability. Most of the showers expected from this system won’t be an issue until Friday. When this happens, highs will drop about 30 degrees going into Saturday with the central and northern regions expecting rainfall and snowfall throughout the day.

Overnight tonight, lows will be right around seasonable levels with 20s and 30s. Winds will calm down and the skies will remain clear. Tomorrow, winds pick up in the morning from the south with cloud cover not coming in until the afternoon. By then, temperatures will have warmed into the 70s for the east and the 60s for the west. The warm temperatures stick around for Friday before the big drop comes in for the weekend.
