Cold Front Brings Rain and Winds Ahead and Behind Front
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Sunshine and warm temperatures were ahead of the cold front that made its way across Wyoming Saturday. It brought with it light rain across the state. Thunderstorms were abundant in western South Dakota and western Nebraska. Those fortunately did not back-build nor did the rain showers grow in instability to produce lightning over Wyoming. Rain showers will linger in eastern Wyoming into the Sunday morning mostly ceasing by sunrise. This will provide a brief break for the day Sunday before we have additional rain showers and possible thunderstorms late afternoon Sunday into Monday morning.
Winds will be troublesome the next few days to those expecting calm and quiet conditions outdoors in some parts of the state. Saturday evening winds will decrease in speed and pick-up again Sunday along the southern border and other locations with speeds of 45mph in Rock Springs and 35mph in Newcastle and Sundance in the afternoon. Sunday travels could be delayed along I-80. Winds strengthen Monday afternoon in the southeast with wind gusts exceeding 50mph at some locations. Don’t be surprised to see high delays or partial closures north of Cheyenne along I-25 and west of Cheyenne along I-80 until Elk Mountain.
Despite the windy Monday, weather will be quite benign for most of the week as temperatures warm to the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Low temperatures will be in the upper 30s to low 40s. Breezy winds will stick around during this time giving us typical Wyoming spring weather.
