CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Thanks to high-pressure moving into the state, a lot of the cloud cover and shower activity was not a problem for today. This allowed temperatures to warm up a little bit, but still below average for this time of year. A couple of showers popped up along the north western side of the state, but nothing in terms of heavy downpours or severe weather came about from it. This looks to be the pattern over the next few days with a little bit of clouds and showers along the northern end of the state around Sheridan and Buffalo. Friday is the day we are keeping an eye on considering there is the chance for some heavier showers and possibly even some severe weather.

Until that really takes place, wind gusts should be calm over the next few days staying under 20 mph for the most part. It begins to pick up a little bit more so going into Friday afternoon when those heavier showers and thunderstorms are expected. Because the gusts even then are looking to remain calm, I would not expect a whole lot in terms of travel impacts or delays. Overnight tonight, temperature should be right around the seasonal range in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

The general warming trend will continue heading toward the end of the week with some of those upper 60s and lower 70s making a come back into the forecast by tomorrow afternoon. This will only be hampered by some increasing cloud cover along the northern side of the state. Once temperatures hit their peak, higher rain chances and thunderstorms come back into the forecast and will drop off our highs slightly. Overall, the extended forecast shows temperature should be close to the seasonal range for at least the next week.
