CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The massive frontal system that came through over the weekend and left us with lots of cool temperatures and scattered rain showers has pushed far enough out to the east and has left us with mostly clear skies and above average temperatures for today. Heading into the late evening hours tonight, expect a little bit of cloud cover to begin pushing in from the west as a new cold front is expected to come in. Early tomorrow morning, more cloud cover can be expected throughout much of the state with some isolated rain showers and possible thunderstorms making their way into the forecast by tomorrow afternoon. Because of that, just be sure to keep that umbrella handy for any kind of graduation ceremonies. The front itself will stick around into the weekend bringing lots of scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.

At least the only snow expected in the forecast is remaining in the mountainous regions as temperatures from the front are not expected to be as cold as what we saw before. Wind gusts look to remain calm throughout the day tomorrow before the afternoon arrives. By this time, the front will already begin pushing through and very strong gusts from the west getting over 40 mph are expected. This will certainly cause a few travel in packs, delays and possibly even some partial closures. A similar story looks to be taking place for Saturday afternoon as well when the showers and thunderstorms become more prevalent.

Despite the front pushing through tomorrow, temperatures during the overnight hours will remain in the 40s and 50s for much of the state. Tomorrow’s highs are still expected to be on the warm side and possibly even warmer than what we saw today with a few 90s trying to sneak in and out in the Nebraska panhandle. Unfortunately, this cold front being as slow as it is projected to be, temperatures will begin a cooling trend starting Saturday and not ending until the middle of next week. That means expect higher rain chances throughout much of our memorial day weekend.
