Rainy Weekend Ahead
27 May 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Today started off with above average temperatures once more with a couple isolated thunderstorms popping up during the afternoon. As the cold front began to push through the northern half of the state, very strong winds were picking up resulting in a few severe thunderstorms out to the far eastern side of the state. Overnight tonight, most of the showers will remain in the north western corner of Wyoming with heavier rain and snow showers expected around Jackson and Evanston tomorrow morning. Any kind of snow in the forecast is just going to remain on the mountain tops due to the fact that the cold front is very slow moving and not that powerful. Rain chances for many of the central and southern cities remain pretty low tomorrow before picking up drastically going into Sunday morning and afternoon.
By then, heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected with the chance for some severe storms as well. Wind gusts only look to be picking up during the time of rain and thunderstorms during the afternoon this weekend. Gusts can get to over 40 mph in some locations in results in a few travel impacts, delays, and even some partial closures. Overall, the wind direction is going to vary as the front will be moving everything around.
Until then, temperatures will be above average for the overnight hours getting into the low 50s and upper 40s. Even with the front passing through tomorrow, temperatures themselves will just begin a gradual cool down over the next couple of days. The highest chances for precipitation remain on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with a warm up expected going toward the second half of next week.
