Light Smoke, Week of No Weather Starts Monday
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Sunday weather concluded with some breezy wind gust measurements across Wyoming. A dry cold front made its way from the north toward the southeast over the course of the day. Wind gusts were highest in Laramie at 44 mph and Rock Springs at 43 mph. Breezy conditions will decrease in speed to light wind speeds by midnight. Tonight’s low temperatures are cooler than last night. Low to mid 50s in southeast Wyoming while the remainder of the state has upper 40s to low 50s cool off the state after the cold front passage. Tomorrow high temperatures will be in the 80s.
Weather was almost entirely absent as a few isolated rain showers and thunderstorms stayed to the south in northern Colorado. A few showers popped up in the southern Nebraska panhandle but diminished after a couple hours. That will be the last of weather we see for awhile as the cold front will stall and transition to a dry stationary front staying draped across Wyoming for the next few days. Tuesday, some light wind gusts will pick up along the eastern Wyoming border up to 20 mph. Other than that, no other wind forecast is worth noting. High pressure will settle and build west of the stationary boundary before it exits east. The high pressure will serve as a blocking feature to any cold fronts and Wyoming will be cut-off from the monsoonal flow we have been seeing lately. However, smoke will be pinned west of the stationary front blanketing light smoke across Wyoming as it wavers in the northeast quadrant.
The Cheyenne extended forecast warms after Monday as temperatures remain in the mid 80s for the remainder of the week. There is a slight chance of showers and storms Wednesday but most weather action will stay south of Wyoming. The rest of the state is much clearer in regard to weather. Expect sunny skies and warm temperatures the entire week.
