Much Needed Moisture
11 May 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Some strong winds coming up from the south along the southern side of the state during the day resulted in a few moderate delays along the I80 corridor, and the winds from the north along the northern side of the state helped to fuel increasing shower activity during the late evening hours. This is expected to increase during those overnight hours with a little bit of that snow sticking to the far western side near the mountain ranges. Throughout the day tomorrow, we can start to that front of system to to resulting in the some snow and side and some storm. Clouds look to be sticking around all the way into Friday with strong westerly winds really helping to push most of the moisture out of the region along side the cold front.
Strong wind gusts will be coming down during the overnight hours but really picking up throughout the day tomorrow resulting in gusts over 50 mph leading to possible partial closures and a number of travel delays. During the day on Friday, wins still are going to be on the strong so I was over 40 mph gusts expected throughout the state.
Overnight tonight, the increase in cloud cover and shower chances does mean warmer temperatures with more of those mid 40s and even those lower 50s. As a cold front pushes through tomorrow, temperatures themselves will be a little bit below the seasonal average with upper 50s and lower 60s for the high temperatures. That extended forecast is showing some breezy conditions but a general warming trend as we head toward the weekend and into early next week. The rest of the viewing area is looking at a similar pattern with the highest chances for precipitation taking place throughout the day tomorrow.
