CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Summer is not far away and weather is slowly reflecting that as we seasonally change from Spring. Temperatures are more consistently warm, rain showers and storms are a more common daily occurrence with some of them having moderate to severe thunderstorm potential. For now, isolated general thunderstorms are forecasted for much of Wyoming. Stronger thunderstorm potential is in the northeast to include Sheridan and Gillette as we approach midnight with the possibility of hail as the energy diminishes from the wave over the northern plains. Low temperatures tonight are in the mid 50s to upper 40s for most of Wyoming. High temperatures tomorrow will not change much from today, 80s in the Nebraska panhandle, 70s in eastern Wyoming, and 60s in the southwest.

Sunday temperatures will hold consistent values the next few days.

Little to any cold air is behind this and temperatures will not fluctuate much in the southern half of Wyoming.
