Clear Warm Monday Forecasted
Followed By Cool Temperatures and Increasing Storms Throughout Week
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Showers came and went Sunday over Cheyenne. Storms picked-up after the the passing into Nebraska and northeast Colorado. Frontier Day temperatures were very below average with cloud coverage all day. Storms in northern Wyoming were more noteworthy. Area thunderstorms dominated the northeast as they pushed into South Dakota with heavy rain and gusty winds though no storm reports were found. Tonight’s low temperatures are in the low 60s to mid 50s. Monday will be mostly adverse weather-free with few clouds and a rare shower or storm. Isolated showers and storms are forecasted to hug the eastern Wyoming border but will likely develop further east with a lack of moisture. The lack of clouds will turn the heat up a notch to the upper 80s and low 90s throughout the state.
Monday winds are nothing out of the ordinary gusting up to the mid 20s mph along I-80. The wind direction is more of something to monitor as the forecast has no escaping of funneling the smoke from Idaho into Wyoming. Winds are from the northwest and west throughout much the state and light smoke and particulate matter are likely to carry into west and northern Wyoming from the over 30,000 acre blaze from the Salmon National Forest. Air levels in Yellowstone are currently rated in the “good” threshold opposed to “moderate” less than a week ago.
Tuesday moisture and clouds will return to much of eastern Wyoming with rain showers and isolated storms returning to eastern Wyoming as we reenter the summer pattern. Temperatures are steady below summer averages for the week but the tradeoff is that storm chances increase through the week.
