Warm-up Continues With Some Breezy Winds
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Temperatures continue to warm over the weekend. We have seen the last of the frigid temperatures as we had at the end of this week. We will have to settle for just plain cold in the night and morning hours. Temperatures will warm into Sunday by an average of 10 degrees for the daytime highs. While heavier cloud coverage surrounded Wyoming, the Cowboy State will remain mostly clear to partly cloudy for the next few days. Tonight’s low temperatures will be in the low 20s and upper teens around the Cheyenne region with colder temperatures of lower teens and single digits out west.
What may take away from some of the warmth are breezy winds forecasted for much of this week. Southeast Wyoming will see winds gust 20 to 30 mph with potentially higher speeds around Elk Mountain. This wind swept region tends to be gustier compared to other areas of Wyoming. As for now, we can appreciate breezy opposed to windy conditions for Wyomingites this week but will update the forecast if necessary. Partly cloudy skies from the north moved southward throughout the day. There is a high wind watch and warning in the vicinity of Elk Mountain valid until Sunday at 11:00am.
The extended forecast is consistent for much of Wyoming Sunday and the remainder of the week. Temperatures will remain near seasonal averages. In the middle of the week there are slight chances of snow showers but the state will continue to dry and stay free of any sweeping cold fronts for the foreseeable future.
