Nice and Calm
15 June 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After a number of days of our weather flip-flopping more than a flapjack, it is nice to see much more seasonal temperatures and clear skies all around the state today. The only kind of significant weather on the map today was just a couple of scattered showers north of the border in Montana. Some stronger wind gusts were back in the forecast, but not as strong as the gusts we saw yesterday. This did result in a few moderate delays around the major interstates and highways as well as some partial closures along the Elk Mountain region. Weather conditions over the next few days look to remain on this calm streak with clear skies sticking around until Friday thanks to high pressure. Low pressure begins to move through the area on Friday afternoon which will result in a couple of pop-up showers and maybe even an isolated thunderstorms during that time. The most significant amount of weather can be expected late this weekend as a small cold front pushes through the state.
This storm system is expected to be more of a rainmaker than anything else in its temperatures will only drop by about 10 degrees. Strong wind gusts look to stay out of the forecast until the low pressure moves in on Friday. By then, wind gusts can get over 40 mph which may result in a few delays around the wind prone regions of the interstates.
Until that happens, overnight low temperatures are expected to be right around where they should be in those 40s and 50s with mostly clear skies. The warming trend that we started to see today will continue into tomorrow with above average temperature as expected in those upper 80s and lower 90s. This trend will continue over the next few days until we start to see a lot more rain pop in to the forecast by Sunday and Monday especially along the southern regions of the state.
