Weather-Filled Week for Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming is set to receive several weather types into Sunday evening and Monday morning. Sunday afternoon was filled with isolated rain showers and a few thunderstorms. As the swath of moisture over the top of cold front passing to our south moves closer to Cheyenne, it will plant itself there from midnight to around noon Monday bringing rain, then snow as temperatures approach freezing. Snow totals are 1 to 2 inches from Cheyenne to Scottsbluff while other locations will have less than 1 inch or trace amounts of snow outside the southeast section of Wyoming.
Slick roads and freezing temperatures will lead to degraded road conditions for the southeast as high temperatures are not to reach 40F Monday. The rest of the state will warm considerably more and have less road delays.
Gusting winds will be brief Monday morning after midnight impacting the south-central part of the state reaching up to 40 mph as the cold front nears from Colorado. As it pushes further away, winds will decease in speed. Sporadic breezy conditions from 20 to 30 mph are forecasted around the state Monday. During the course of Monday, wind direction will shift from the east to the north and then the south into the evening bringing that fast warm up of 20F from Monday to Tuesday’s high temperature in the southeast.
It won’t be long until another bout of weather is upon Wyoming. As early as Tuesday afternoon rain showers, thunderstorms and a rain-snow mix will return impacting the central part of the state mostly with it reaching Cheyenne Tuesday evening. This event is forecasted to be more rain in the eastern half of the state while the western half will accumulate some snow totals. We’ll take it one weather event at a time this week but we’re glad to some of it reach the Cheyenne area for a change.
