Changes Coming Up
10 May 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Strong winds across the region today resulted in a few moderate travel impacts headed into those evening hours. It started going away as those wind gusts began to calm down. We saw a little bit of cloud cover slowly starting to creep into our region from the south west with the chance for some very isolated showers around the central and northern part of the state. That is due to a low pressure system along side stationary front sitting right over top of us. This will begin pushing out to the east by Wednesday, but it will begin churning up some more showers as we go into Wednesday evening with a chance for some thunderstorms as well.
This pressure system will then push out resulting in an increase in rain and snow chances throughout the day on Thursday before beginning to clear up as we head to the weekend. Wind gusts will only pick up during the late afternoons and only for the southern half of the state along interstate 80. Gusts can get up to about 35 an even 40 mph with Thursday afternoon having the strongest gusts at over 50 mph. This is likely to cause some partial closures around wind prone regions like Elk Mountain until they go away.
Overnight tonight, temperatures will be staying on the warm side due to the increase in our cloud cover with a lot more upper 30s and lower 40s around the state. Tomorrow’s temperatures are going to vary drastically depending on where in the state you are. Much of the southern areas can see temperatures in the 70s and 80s due to the fact that the stationary front is a warm front when it pushes to the north. Northern areas that aren’t going to see the front will be on the more seasonal side with more of those 50s and 60s. Extended forecast is showing slight chances for some showers as we make our way toward the end of the week with a slight drop in temperatures as well. Don’t worry, as temperatures are expected to warm back up as we make our way toward the end of the weekend and into early next week.
