CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming did not break high temperature records as we did yesterday in Buffalo, Greybull, Torrington, and Scottsbluff. That is mostly due to the heavy Saturday cloud coverage coming from Colorado. This trend will continue Sunday and Monday. Sunday has the most concerning weather as severe criteria is not out of the question for eastern Wyoming as starting place as those storms will spill into South Dakota and Nebraska. High winds in excess of 45mph and small hail are possible if a you are to cross one of these severe storm cells. The development of this weather will start in the early afternoon and reach its strength a few hours later as maximum heating approaches. But most of Wyoming will see mostly rain showers, general thunderstorms, and breezy winds for Father’s Day. Low temperatures will be warm tonight mostly in the 60s in the eastern half of the viewing area. Tomorrows high temperatures will range from the 90s in western Nebraska to the 80s and 70s in eastern Wyoming. Out west will drop to the 60s giving the region a much wanted cool down for the next few days.
