Changes Coming Next Week
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -
Starting off today with a record, Rawlins has officially had their wettest winter on record. The National Weather Service doesn’t have official snowfall measurements in the Rawlins area however they can measure water that’s left when it all melts. Meteorological winter is December to February and this winter Rawlins got almost 6″ of water which is almost 3″ more than the previous record set in 2010-2011 and nearly 4.5″ more than the average. That’s all thanks to the big winter storm we had around New Years and also that snow storm we had pretty recently.
However, tonight isn’t the night to celebrate, at least, not outside. Winter still has a hold over our lows tonight with most places down below 30 degrees across the area. Cheyenne’s area will be nearest 30 while Casper will be near 20. Places to the west will be colder and near the single digits in some areas. Winds could make those places feel very cold.
Tomorrow’s highs are warmer around the area with the Cheyenne area being over 40 degrees while Casper and areas to the west just at or below freezing. Again, the western edge of Wyoming will stay cold around the teens.
Rounding things out with our extended forecasts, Cheyenne has steady temperatures until around Monday when colder temperatures move in and a chance of snow moves in and stays with us until Thursday. For Casper, stable temperatures and weather until Tuesday where we get a chance of snow. Otherwise, plenty of sun around the area and below average temperatures through the week.
