CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A couple thunderstorms made an appearance in northwest Wyoming Sunday afternoon. The rest of the state had few clouds, if any. Temperatures were warmer Sunday than yesterday. This trend will continue into tomorrow with peak high temperatures Monday and Tuesday before a cold front moves in Wednesday. Monday low temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s. Monday high temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s and mid 90s in west Nebraska. Most light smoke went north with the exception of the northern and eastern Wyoming borders. By Monday morning, that too will exit the state leaving clean air until Tuesday morning when a cold front from the north starts to push a thinner line of smoke back down over Wyoming. Stronger breezy winds from Rock Springs to El Mountain were above 30mph. The breezy winds will continue into the night and morning hours to some extent as it will set up what will be a very breezy Monday afternoon across Wyoming. Most locations will near 30mph in the afternoon hours while some locations in the higher elevations will near 40mph.
Breezy wind conditions coupled with above average temperatures and low humidity are cause for a Fire Weather Warning across most of Wyoming. The warning starts at noon Monday until 8pm.
A big chill is coming to Wyoming by mid-week. Rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will impact southeast Wyoming and west Nebraska the most as weather from north Colorado collides with the cold front that will be coming from the north. The result blocks most weather and moisture from moving into central and north Wyoming.
