Clouds and Showers Moving In
27 April 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We saw very nice conditions around the state today again, but there was a lot more cloud cover and even some scattered showers around. Most of the snow, of course, stayed to the far north western regions where temperatures are below freezing on mountain tops. More of that shower activity popped up around the central and northern parts of the state as well. Models are showing that most of the showers should dissipate going into the late evening hours and even starting off tomorrow morning. We’re still going to see a lot more cloud cover over the next few days with more of those showers coming up during the late evening hours. There’s also the chance for some thunderstorm activity around the Worland and Sheridan region. Heading into our Friday, the stationary front is slowly going to start to move out of our region but still leave us with a lot of moisture in the atmosphere, resulting in heavy showers in the northern areas as well as heavy snow in the mountains. Those showers will then move into the southern regions going into the afternoon and evening hours before calming down. The good news is wind gusts are going to stay pretty calm throughout the overnight hours and even into tomorrow morning.
It won’t be until tomorrow evening when we start to see wind gusts picking up to about 35 to even 40 mph in the southern and central areas. It will pick up once more going toward Friday afternoon when that front begins moving out getting up to 45 mph in some areas. This will certainly result in a few traffic delays and even some partial closures along more wind prone roads.
Just like last night, temperatures tonight are going to be above average and above the freezing point due to the increase in cloud cover and shower activity. High temperatures tomorrow are going to be a little bit cooler than what we saw today due to showers and clouds, but still above average for this time of year with lots of 60s and a few 70s in the southeast. That extended forecast is telling the same story with a lot more shower activity on Friday and even a slight cool down around 10 to 15 degrees before warming back up toward the beginning of next week. The rest of the viewing area will see a lot more shower and thunderstorm activity for Friday, especially in the central in northern regions of the state, with the southern areas seeing more cloud cover but also that same decrease in temperature.
