Cool Temperatures and Cheyenne Rain Chances Concludes Weekend Weather
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Rain showers missed Cheyenne to the south late afternoon Sunday. All of I-25 between Cheyenne and Ft. Collins got the rainfall. More broadly, Wyoming saw a big cool down after the cold front passed and polar air from the north cooled Wyoming and neighboring states off from summer temperatures. This will continue into Sunday. Not only by temperatures, but weather potential too as south Wyoming will see a few showers and couple isolated storms Sunday afternoon. Low temperatures around Cheyenne and most of Wyoming will be cooler than usual in the 40s and colder in the northwest into the 30s. Tomorrows high temperatures will be in the 70s for most locations. Enjoy this while you can as temperatures jump to the 80s starting Monday.
Winds speeds are not an issue so much as the wind direction that is impacting Wyoming weather. Saturday night winds will begin to shift from the east cutting off the cold air from the north. Wind speeds Sunday morning before sunrise will increase due to localized funneling of shifting winds in the south central region from Rock Springs to Elk Mountain up to the mid 20 mph range. After sunrise, into the afternoon, anywhere will be hard pressed to see winds over 20 mph across Wyoming. Sunday evening winds from the southeast over Cheyenne to Casper will increase nearing 30 mph. By Monday, the winds will have shifted from the south and that will bring warm air over the state.
Weather patterns will be consistent Sunday and Monday where west of Cheyenne will have the most rain shower development in each afternoon. Few showers and a couple lightning strikes are forecasted but don’t be surprised if this misses to the south once more. As of now, Monday chances are best for weather to reach the Capital City.
