Warmer Temperatures and Southeast Wyoming Showers to Start Week
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Weather passed to the south again Sunday as it did Saturday. Rain showers and a few isolated thunderstorms started to develop along the southern Wyoming border. Then they migrated southeast into Utah and Colorado. Clouds in southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska will scatter overnight. Temperatures remained cool Sunday at 80F to the upper 60s for much of Wyoming. Tomorrow will start a warming trend for the next few days as temperatures will reach the upper 80s and low 90s Tuesday and Wednesday. Low temperatures tonight will be in the low 50s to mid 40s throughout Wyoming.
Storms will finally come to Cheyenne Monday afternoon as a line of storms originates west near Laramie and stretches up I-25 to Wheatland before it progresses southeastward into the Nebraska panhandle. General thunderstorms are forecasted. No need to seek shelter when it approaches. Tuesday will break the weather pattern we’ve had since Saturday with isolated storms moving to the northern half of Wyoming originating near the National Parks and continuing eastward throughout the day ending its route near Sheridan and Gillette.
Winds are tame for Wyoming the next few days. Breezy spots will pop up along the eastern border Monday morning before sunrise up to 25 mph. Winds will remain light Monday until the line of storms develops in the southeast. Along this line of showers and storms winds can gust above 30 mph briefly with collapsing cells and outflow boundaries. This will occur in the late afternoon as the storms trek toward Nebraska.
The extended forecast has Wyoming heating up over the next few days to the upper 80s and low 90s. From Wednesday to Thursday a cold front will pass lowering high temperatures by about 10 degrees on average in all locations.
