We will see clouds moving through the especially for much of central and western Wyoming.
Low temperatures across the cowboy state will fall into the 30s and 40s for many locations across the area. If you are going to be out, make sure to have that jacket or hoodie ready.
A High Wind Watch is in effect for parts of the North Snowy Range Foothills of Albany and Carbon Counties from 9 PM this evening through Sunday afternoon. This includes areas from Arlington to Elk Mountain along I-80.
Gusty winds will increase at times as we head into Sunday. Southwest Winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph are possible. Areas in the watch area could see winds up to 60 mph or greater at times.
Despite the breezy conditions, we will see a mix of sun and clouds for much of the state.
