Weekend Temperatures Rise For Southeast Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A couple High Wind Warnings remain after a wild wintery week of weather. These warnings will expire Sunday morning and temperatures will warm some going into the afternoon. It will still be breezy in localized valleys and the Wyoming eastern interior with gusts in the mid 20 mph range in the morning and afternoon hours. The breeze-swept region will migrate to southeast Wyoming Monday morning gusting past 30 mph to start the week. A week of breezy winds in Wyoming will be upstream of the Wind Chill Watch in northeast Wyoming, across much of South Dakota and north-central Nebraska from Monday to Friday as a tight pressure gradient and a cold air mass settle over the region for several days.
Temperatures will rise some going into Sunday, especially the southeast, as a shallow frontal boundary to the north meanders its way southward not bringing too much weather with it. This can be responsible for the breezy winds Sunday and Monday in addition to some snow shower activity near Jackson Hole starting Monday morning with light flurries and more significant snowfall going into Tuesday morning likely as a precursor to the next cold front forecasted for Wednesday across Wyoming. The next cold front system will have the highest snow totals in northwest Wyoming and the Medicine Bow Mountain region.
Besides the several inches of snowfall elsewhere throughout the state of Wyoming, the cold air mass behind the front will bring frigid negative temperatures for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning.
