Warm, Breezy Start to Week
Winds and a Winter Weather Mix Approaching
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A cool, pleasant weekend concludes with some warming forecasted to start the week off. This is good news for any outdoor Halloween festivities. Aside from warmer daytime temperatures starting Monday, breezy winds may seep into the early evening hours as sun sets around 6:00pm. From sunset to midnight temperatures will be from the low 50s to the 40s in the Cheyenne region so wearing a layer or two of clothing below your costume will keep you and others warm. High temperatures will be mostly in the 60s through Wednesday. Tonight’s low temperatures will be in the 20s and 30s state-wide.
Monday will start breezy wind conditions that will turn windy come Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday, the Elk Mountain region of Casper, Rawlins, and Laramie will gust up to 30mph in the afternoon and taper down in the evening. But that won’t be the end of winds. They lessen up over Halloween evening and will return the next day stronger. A breezy Tuesday morning will become windy state-wide in the afternoon reaching up to 40mph in the Elk Mountain region with mid to upper 30s elsewhere throughout the state.
Wednesday is forecasted to be windy ahead of the incoming cold front that will start in western Wyoming in the morning and move slowly east over the course of the day reaching Casper in the late evening. The leading edge of the cold front is forecasted to reach Cheyenne early Thursday. This cold front will bring a mix of rain and snow depending on the time of day/night and at what elevations. While precipitation type is uncertain at this time, temperatures are sure to drop significantly starting Thursday by an average of 25-30 degrees.
