Windy with a Warm Up
13 May 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The strong winds from the west all across the state caused lots of problems today with a number of partial closures along both interstate 80 and interstate 25. If there were not any partial closures near you, then you more likely saw moderate delays. The low pressure system attached to the cold front that just passed is moving up to the Canadian border while a lot of our shower activity locally is pushed its way out to the east thanks to those very strong winds. As we head into those overnight hours, most of the showers should be gone and winds will begin calming down before we start to see a little bit more winter activity in the northwest around Yellowstone and Jackson. The chance for some isolated sprinkles along the northern part of the state like Worland, Sheridan and Gillette are possible heading into late afternoon early evening tomorrow. Sunday looks to be much better with mostly clear skies and relatively calm winds.
Overall, it looks like a great way to end our weekend. Strong wind gusts will be coming back into the forecast by tomorrow afternoon with most of it staying along the southern side of the state with gas getting up to about 40 mph. This may be enough to cause some moderate delays or even partial closures along interstate 80 especially in wind prone regions. By Sunday, it looks to be calming down with still some westerly winds but not getting over 25 mph for the most part.
Overnight tonight, temperatures are going to range anywhere from the mid 30s to those mid 40s with those clouds clearing out. Temperatures will continue on this warming trend as we make our way into tomorrow with the northern cities getting into those mid to upper 60s and the south east getting into the low to mid 70s. It will continue to warm up as we make our way into early next week but we also see a bit more in terms of shower probabilities. The rest of the viewing area is looking at a similar pattern with strong storms moving through on Tuesday helping to cool down the above average temperatures.
