CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A healthy dose of rain showers and thunderstorms came down on Cheyenne Sunday afternoon. It will help the city to catch-up to where annual precipitation totals should be. Yesterday the Capital City received .35″ adding to the current annual total of 7″ while 10.75″ is the average this time of year. Besides weather on the eastside of the Laramie Mountains and over Cheyenne, there was not much weather to report otherwise as clear to partly cloudy skies were concurrent with remainder of Wyoming. Temperatures were cooler than usual as the stationary front is still hanging around the southern border. Tonight’s low temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s around Cheyenne and range from the low to upper 50s elsewhere.

Monday will start the continuance of high pressure building from the western Wyoming border. As a result, clearing weather to the east and a slow climb of high temperatures will occur throughout the week. There is a slight chance of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms to return Monday afternoon impacting the area from Laramie to South of Scottsbluff as a repeat event from Sunday. Besides this small area for weather recurrence, Wyoming hasn’t had this clear a weather forecast in awhile since the monsoon season started. High temperatures will warm slightly from Sunday ranging from the low 80s to the low 90s. Winds will be light gusting into the teens and up to 20mph during the day on the rare occasion.

Tuesday will push the active southeast weather corner further east into the Nebraska panhandle as high temperatures will warm further. No significant weather until the end of this week. By then, temperatures will be hot enough we will want weather to make another appearance.

Weather clears and temperatures climb throughout the week.
