Warm Spring Temperatures
26 April 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We started to see a little bit of that cloud cover and even shower activity trying to push its way in from the west, but that certainly didn’t stop temperatures today from reaching above average with lots of those 60s around the region. Unfortunately, it looks like this cloud cover is going to stick with us for a little bit longer. Tomorrow morning expect some more shower activity to try and come in from the west, but it’s not gonna have much luck really until the afternoon hours. By the late evening on Wednesday, expect very isolated rain showers to come through the region. It’s nothing too bad with rain chances still staying low, but it can’t hurt to carry that umbrella around just in case. Thursday looks to be a similar pattern with a little bit more in terms of shower activity during the evening and overnight hours.
Most of the snow chances are just sticking to the mountainous areas as temperatures for much of this week are expected to be above the freezing point. Wind gusts are going to stay calm going into the overnight hours and even throughout much of tomorrow morning. They look to pick up just a little bit going into the late evening hours on Wednesday before calming down once again. By the afternoon on Thursday expect the strongest wind gusts to be about 30 to 35 mph along the I 80 corridor.
Overnight tonight, temperatures are going to be on the warmer side compared to what we normally see this time of year. There are a number of places getting into those upper 30s and even some lower 40s with only the western side of the state getting below the freezing point. High temperatures tomorrow look to be very similar to what we saw today with lots of mid 60s and even some lower 70s in the southeastern corner. The extended forecast shows that cloud cover is gonna be sticking around with us all the way in to the end of the week where it looks like another cold front is coming through and upping our rain chances for Friday and Saturday. The good news is temperatures are only going to drop about 10 to 20 before warming back up again going into next week. The rest of the viewing area is seeing a similar pattern with most of the northern areas expecting the heaviest amounts of precipitation heading toward the weekend.
