Cool Down Sunday With Few Thunderstorms
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Two rounds of weather encroached on Cheyenne Saturday. First were rain showers from northern Colorado before the 5:30pm broadcast. Then around 7pm the thunderstorms that were tracking along southern Wyoming this afternoon reached Cheyenne. The weather cleared by 8pm and headed toward western Nebraska and northeast Colorado. A cold front passed over Wyoming Saturday to provide some temperature relief into Sunday. While cooler temperatures are welcomed, there are stronger storms forecasted Sunday afternoon for eastern Wyoming. Wind gusts above 50 mph, heavy rain, and small hail are likely in the paths of these storms. East of Casper by 2pm and through Gillette by 6pm are likely locations and times for the most adverse weather.
Winds are not much of a concern as some breezy spots will pop up throughout the state Sunday. Douglas reaches 30mph as the highest daytime wind speed but many other cities reach 25 mph as a stationary front meanders making winds directions change throughout the day. Through the course of the afternoon, a warm front will form leaving some stronger wind speeds in its wake with speeds near 40 mph in places like Sheridan and Worland. Its not a coincidence that frontal boundaries are in the close vicinity at that time.
Monday is warm and weather free for the most part. Enjoy the break in weather and plenty of sunshine as Tuesday the summer moisture returns with chance thunderstorms for much of Wyoming. There is another drop in temperature state-wide Tuesday to accompany the weather so Wyomingites are not suffering from heat AND weather. From Tuesday onward average summer temperatures and chance storms will be repetitious.
