Storms Forecasted the Next Few Days
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.
Winds are breezy across Wyoming the next few days. Sunday morning and afternoon winds can reach the mid 30mph range in cities near the southern border. These winds will taper off into Sunday night and increase into Monday afternoon where the mid 30mph range is more widespread across the state.
Rain showers and thunderstorms have potential into tonight and through Tuesday. With a short wave ridge currently over the center of the state, it will spur showers and storms with a possibility of small hail in the Casper region. However, most of the activity will increase in the afternoon hours each day. The warmer temperatures allow this to happen and the weather last a little bit longer into the night as the long days of summer energizes the atmosphere. A line of thunderstorms will move from Yellowstone and carry across the northern half of the state tomorrow as a cold front passes. Little to any cold air is behind this and temperatures will not fluctuate much in the southern half of Wyoming.
