Showers with a Cool Down
23 June 2022
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - It was another warm day across much of the Cowboy State with temperatures getting into those upper 80s and lower 90s across much of the region. That is despite the fact that we started to see some increase in our cloud cover as well as precipitation going into the afternoon hours. We can expect to see a lot more of that in the forecast for tomorrow afternoon as the cold front is expected to increase our thunderstorm activity during that time. The storm prediction center does have a level one marginal risk for severe storms with the chance for small hail on top of it. Despite the severe potential, we could really use the rain across much of the state given the current drought conditions. Most of the heavy rain and thunderstorms is expected to dwindle going into Saturday leaving just a chance for some isolated sprinkles.
The Wyoming wind looks to remain on the calm end of the spectrum until the thunderstorms begin popping up during the afternoon hours. Expect the gusts to get up to over 30 mph and even stronger and more wind prone regions. This could certainly lead to a few moderate delays along the major interstates and highways, but nothing more than that. The same kind of pattern is expected for Saturday as well.
Overnight tonight, expect the increase in cloud cover to keep our temperatures on the warmer end of the spectrum with lots of upper 50s and lower 60s. High temperatures tomorrow afternoon are expected to begin dipping down a bit thanks for that cold front. Expect a mix of 60s, 70s and 80s all across the state. Heading into the weekend, temperatures will continue dropping into the 60s and 70s for much of the region thanks for that cold front. At least most of that shower activity is expected to dwindle out by then.
