Monday Cool Down
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Sunday was warm across Wyoming before clouds developed into storms in the Cheyenne area. Two rounds of thunderstorms passed through Cheyenne Sunday. Temperatures were hot in Wyoming but not close to record breaking as we saw Saturday. All this weather is associated with a shallow cold front passing through. Relief from the heat will be felt Monday and Tuesday. Tonight low temperatures will be in the 50s. Tomorrow high temperatures will be in the upper 70s for Cheyenne and 80s for western Nebraska and the viewing area.
Monday will be great weather-wise for most of Wyoming. A different weather pattern brings us rain showers and isolated thunderstorms along the southern Wyoming border in the afternoon. Mostly cloud cover will be in this region. Light winds will be from the north that will assist in bringing those cooler temperatures behind the cold front that passed. Tuesday, temperatures will trend upward but remain below average temperatures. Southeast Wyoming is forecasted to have a larger thunderstorm cell develop east of the Laramie Mountains and head toward the Capital City. Moderate rainfall intensity and moderate wind speeds reaching 35mph are likely. Currently, from 2 to 4pm is the threat period of this storm. After it passes Cheyenne, it will become a line of thunderstorms as it moves through Nebraska and Northeast Colorado.
This week starts off great with cooler temperatures and not much weather impacting Wyoming. By mid week summer temperatures will return with enough moisture in the area to bring back shower and storm chances throughout the state.
