Strong Storms and Winds Leave Us Clear and Warm
20 June 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - There were a number of severe thunderstorms across the state today during the early parts of the afternoon and even a tornado just to the east of Scottsbluff Nebraska. This was due to a weak cold front pushing out of the state and the strong winds across the region helped fuel the storms. The strong winds unfortunately, did cause a number of partial closures and even moderate delays across our travel impacts map today. As the winds continue to calm down as we head into the overnight hours, we can expect to see much better travel conditions. Most of those thunderstorms have now pushed out into the Dakotas resulting in still number of severe thunderstorms across the northern United States. The good news is that most of these storms look to stay well outside of our region over the next couple of days with mostly clear skies expected throughout the day tomorrow.
Starting early Wednesday morning, expect a little bit of cloud cover to begin pushing in from the south. Over the next few days, wind gusts are going to remain relatively steady and not really pick up over 20 mph. This is good news considering we had very strong gusts affecting our region today. Due to the fact that this cold front pushed through, expect low temperatures tonight to be below average for much of the state with lots of 30s and 40s.
High temperatures tomorrow are expected to warm up just a little bit but still remain a little bit below average for this time of year. If you like the warm temperatures, don’t worry because those will be back in the forecast by the middle of this week before the next system comes through over the weekend. Expect an increase in rain chances by then as well, but at least we have a few days before this happens.
