Great Weather This Weekend
Patchy Frost to Start Sunday Morning
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Temperatures were several degrees above average today with few clouds in the sky. A thunderstorm or two were short-lived on the westside of the Wind River Range Mountains this afternoon. A few showers and storms in northern Colorado stayed put mostly and moved south with the steering flow. The rest of Wyoming had pleasant weather conditions. Sunday morning will have near freezing temperatures and patchy frost as a result in southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska panhandle. However, frost will melt quickly after sunrise as little cloud cover will be present in the morning. The afternoon forecast calls for some warming of temperatures and light winds.
The excellent weekend weather will carry into Monday as temperatures won’t change much and plenty of sunshine will be statewide. Breezy wind speeds will increase throughout the afternoon to the mid 20s in the northwest and above 30mph along I-80.
Tuesday is when we are expecting the next cold front. Weather associated with the front will be more significant starting in the northwest tracking through central and east central Wyoming. The northwest will be cold enough Tuesday morning to see a rain/snow mix though no snow should accumulate on the ground. There is a good chance that most of the weather from the next front will pass over the north of Cheyenne over the course of Tuesday. What will happen is a drop of temperature Tuesday and Wednesday as the cold air settles over Wyoming in its passing. Most of Wyoming will remain in the 60s for some time after.
