28 April 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The radar today showed a lot more shower and thunderstorm activity around the state on top of the cloud cover. We already some thunderstorm activity moving around around the Buffalo region with and the southeastern corner of near Cheyenne. Most of that snow is just sticking to the mountain tops as temperatures are still staying above average for this time of year. Future models are showing the chance for more heavy rain and even the possibility of severe storms out in the Nebraska panhandle and South Dakota going into those overnight hours with most of the precipitation staying in the north western side of the state. Tomorrow morning, more of that cloud cover and more shower activity is expected throughout the day with a lot of it beginning to push toward the southeast going into the evening hours. By Saturday, conditions should clear up and we’re even going to start to see more of that sunshine as the clouds move out too.
Unfortunately, this is going to result in some strong wind gusts early Saturday morning. Those winds should be calming down as we go into the evening hours, but it’ll pick up by as early as tomorrow morning along the southern half of the state getting up to about 30 to 35 mph. This wind is expected to last throughout the day and slowly push off to the east where these guys can get up to over 40 mph, and likely caused a few travel impacts. During the day on Saturday those winds will continue hugging the eastern side but gusts will be calming down to about 35 mph.
Just like the last few nights, expect overnight low temperatures to be on the warm side with high 30s and low 40s due to the increase in cloud cover and precipitation chances. Tomorrow is when we’re going to start to see cooler temperatures as that funnel system pushes its way south and eventually out of the state. It’s not going to be a significant cool down, but do expect temperatures to drop about 10 to 15° compared to today’s highs. The extended forecasts have the central in northern parts of the state expecting the most precipitation throughout the day tomorrow but eventually warming back up by as early as Saturday. Southern regions can’t expect the slightest chance of precipitation, but do we expect windy conditions throughout the weekend.
