CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A picture perfect Sunday of weather is topped off with a total lunar eclipse. What more could you ask for? It helps tremendously that Wyoming will have minimal cloud coverage tonight during the lunar eclipse. A fifty percent eclipse will be from 8:59pm to 11:23pm with the peak being at 10:11pm to sight the most red version of the moon Sunday evening. Lows tonight will be in the mid 40s in the Cheyenne region and 40s throughout most of Wyoming.

While the weekend weather was fantastic, a cold front is closing in on the Wyoming western border as early as Monday morning. Clouds will swiftly move into the state in the morning hours and start isolated rain showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon that will recur for much of this week across the state. Since it takes time for the cold front to cross over the state, warm temperatures will increase throughout the day, especially in the eastern half with the Cheyenne region reaching the 80s before the weather encroaches. Winds will not be a much of a threat Monday and Tuesday but expect more breezy conditions after that point later in the week.

Weather occurrences should keep us on our toes this week with warmer temperatures and several frontal boundaries making their way toward Wyoming. Tuesday is pegged as the most significant weather day in the current forecast. Most other days have a slight chance of showers and storms elsewhere.

Showers and storms are on repeat in much of the state this week.
