Monday Storms, Stable Temperatures To Start Week
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Rain showers and thunderstorms were widespread across Wyoming Sunday afternoon and evening. This weather is ahead of a cold front that extends from Wyoming to the Mexican border. Closer to the warm front severe thunderstorm warnings were issued north of Devils Tower as Montana took the majority of oncoming severe weather while another line of storms moved across the Nebraska panhandle and South Dakota. Wyoming was spared from the most dangerous weather and was able to catch up with precipitation totals as it received much desired rainfall. Rain and storms will taper off into the Sunday night hours and skies will scatter temporarily at least until Monday afternoon. Then another round of afternoon thunderstorms will spark mainly northeast of the Sheridan-Gillette region and extend to Rapid City, SD. Bursts of high winds and small hail are likely in the vicinity of these cells.
Sunday into Monday winds will shift from the southwest to the west and increase in speed throughout Monday late morning and afternoon with Casper close to 50mph and Laramie at 40mph. Other locations will have plus or minus 30mph with exception for higher terrain. Tuesday will have light winds after the cold front has passed.
Low temperatures will be a bit cooler tonight by a few degrees. Mid 50s to low 60s in the Cheyenne region with mid 50s to 40s to the north and west. High temperatures tomorrow will stay consistent in the mid to low 80s in the Cheyenne region and upper 80s and low 90s in the Nebraska panhandle. Cooler temperatures are in north and central Wyoming in the 70s and 60s. These temperatures will warm marginally into Tuesday before a warm uptick midweek.
