This weekend turned out to be very nice with temperatures on the warmer side. Skies were mostly clear and there was a slight breeze. Today, the temperatures were above average, but I would enjoy it while you can because we will cooling down quickly by Tuesday.
After much of the whole state saw their first snowfall of the season, we are beginning to calm back down and warm back up. Snowfall totals are still coming in so I will be sure to have those number available to you on social media.
The big cities in the northern and central regions of the state got their first snowfall of the season overnight. Snowfall totals are still coming in, but as of this morning, they range anywhere from almost foot near the mountains to about an inch in the lower elevations.
Temperatures have cooled down to much more seasonable temperatures for this weekend. Highs got into the low to mid 60s in the big cities and we will begin cooling down more so during the overnight hours.
Some places are already starting to see cooler temperature while other regions aren’t seeing any change. The cold front itself is very slow moving and is expected to stall out tomorrow and continuing to bring more clouds, showers, and snow to the Cowboy State over the weekend.
It has been really nice outside for the past few days ever since that strong cold front moved through. Temperatures are starting to get a little on the warmer side for this time of year, but it won’t last long.
This cold front has done wonders for our weather. The temperatures are right where they are supposed to be for this time of year, most of the rain is out of the region entirely, and the easterly winds are helping to keep the worst of the smoke away.
Temperatures across the state today stayed nice and cool thanks to the cold front passing through. It also brought a lot of showers and storms that we saw yesterday with it too, so we just saw mostly clear skies to the north and those clouds sticking around to the south.
It is safe to say that the weather across the state today is beginning to show the cold front moving through. Temperatures are starting to cool, winds are picking up, clouds are moving in, and showers are popping up. The smoke is still sticking around, but it doesn’t look like for much longer. The forecast models show it beginning to break up as the showers, storms, and snow move through tomorrow.
It’s funny how quickly weather can change here in Wyoming. Today, we saw very hot temperatures for this time of year around the state and getting close to setting or at least tying some of the records. In a few days, a cold blast will come through and we can see temperatures drop 30-40 degrees and some areas can see some snow.
Temperatures and conditions outside today remained very similar to what we had going on yesterday. Mostly clear skies with a light breeze and seasonable temperatures. Enjoy it while you can because it is going to warm up significantly over the weekend and stay that way until the next big system moved through later next week. The smoke is sticking to the cities near the southern border for now, but will end moving north and covering much of the state going into tomorrow. While the smoke is not very heavy, we can expect some hazy conditions and maybe even a few air quality warnings.
For the first full day of fall, we saw very nice conditions around the state with seasonable temperatures, mostly clear skies, and a slight breeze. This was thanks to the relatively weak cold front that moved through last night. Some of the smoke did sneak into the region overnight from the west prompting some new air quality warnings for areas around Riverton and Lander. Other than that, the front has shifted winds from westerly to northerly. This will help move a lot of that smoke to the southern regions of the state before moving out entirely, for now.
Temperatures certainly warmed up quickly now that the cold front from the weekend is gone. Conditions across the eastern side of the state got up into the upper 70s and lower 80s while the central and western regions stayed in the lower 70s. Certainly nothing to complain about, but they are above average for this time of year. One to complain about is the smoke coming in from the west on our forecast map.
For today being the last day of summer, we saw excellent conditions around the state. Cool temperatures, clear skies, and a nice breeze. Typically, when we see nice conditions like this after a frontal passage, the smoke tries to sneak back into the forecast. While it looks mostly clear for much of tonight and tomorrow, by the evening time, some of it starts coming into the western regions of the state. Luckily, it doesn’t look bad and I do not see any new air quality warnings to be issued as a result.
Wyoming weather is interesting in the sense that within a weekend, we can go from record breaking heat to below freezing temperatures. With the strong cold front coming in over the weekend, temperatures took a big tumble today. Temperatures were over 10 degrees lower than what we typically see this time of year for highs and lows will be a similar story for overnight. Warnings for tonight are different from the ones we have seen lately. There are frost advisories in effect for much of the eastern side of the state and freeze warning for the central and southern regions near the mountain ranges, so be sure to cover up any of those delicate plants.
