Monday will start the continuance of high pressure building from the western Wyoming border. As a result, clearing weather to the east and a slow climb of high temperatures will occur throughout the week. There is a slight chance of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms to return Monday afternoon impacting the area from Laramie to South of Scottsbluff as a repeat event from Sunday. Besides this small area for weather recurrence, Wyoming hasn’t had this clear a weather forecast in awhile since the monsoon season started. High temperatures will warm slightly from Sunday ranging from the low 80s to the low 90s. Winds will be light gusting into the teens and up to 20mph during the day on the rare occasion.
High pressure will build from the northwest and push weather east over the next 24 hours as the stationary boundary lingers along the southern Wyoming border. Sunday afternoon general thunderstorms will develop over the southeast third of the state. Temperatures will remain cool as the stationary front takes its time to push south and clear to Colorado and Nebraska. Overnight temperatures will be in the low 60s to upper 50s in the Cheyenne region and low to upper 50s elsewhere in Wyoming. Tomorrows high temperatures will be in the upper 70s to mid 80s across the state.
Cheyenne Frontier Days was supposed to conclude with some chance showers and storms. Instead, Cheyenne was briefly overrun with smoke for almost an hour as visibility went down to 2 statute miles. After further investigation, preliminary reports were found of a wildfire in Carter Canyon near Gering, NE that started late Saturday. Some reports indicated an evacuation of Carter Canyon Road that same night as 1,000 acres had already burned. More recent reports have the wildfire as large as 13,000 acres with multiple starting points and a breeze of 20 mph adding to the fast growth throughout Sunday. Winds from the northeast will indicate whether Cheyenne will receive more smoke from the blaze. The Monday smoke forecast is not favorable. Throughout the day, smoke will become heavier until midnight when a change in wind direction will clear out southern Wyoming from the fumes and haze.
A few rain showers and thunderstorms moved into Cheyenne Saturday and across Wyoming Saturday. They were short-lived as the nature of these showers and storms would build and collapse within a couple radar scans. These showers covered Wyoming in the afternoon and stayed more to the south of the state as the afternoon continued. Temperatures will be in the lower 60s in the Cheyenne region tonight and the low 60s to upper 50s in the rest of the viewing area. Tomorrow high temperatures will be in the mid 80s in Cheyenne and the mid 90s for Nebraska and cities to the north of the Capital City.
Tonight’s low temperatures are in the low 60s to mid 50s. Monday will be mostly adverse weather-free with few clouds and a rare shower or storm. Isolated showers and storms are forecasted to hug the eastern Wyoming border but will likely develop further east with a lack of moisture. The lack of clouds will turn the heat up a notch to the upper 80s and low 90s throughout the state.
A cold front passed over Wyoming Saturday to provide some temperature relief into Sunday. While cooler temperatures are welcomed, there are stronger storms forecasted Sunday afternoon for eastern Wyoming. Wind gusts above 50 mph, heavy rain, and small hail are likely in the paths of these storms. East of Casper by 2pm and through Gillette by 6pm are likely locations and times for the most adverse weather.
Sunday was hot across Wyoming as weather was mostly absent. Monday will be even hotter. The only weather question is when clouds will start to fill the skies as all locations enter the max heating hours of the day. As of now, south and southeast Wyoming, to include the Nebraska panhandle, are forecasted for additional cloud coverage and the start of isolated rain showers and thunderstorms by 2 to 3pm. By this measure, it can thwart rising temperatures to reach as high as they would otherwise.
A few thunderstorms and rain showers made their way across Wyoming Saturday with above average temperatures. The heat won’t stop there as by Monday we may be facing record breaking high temperatures. Before that, Sunday will not have much weather besides the rising temperatures from the 90s to triple digits. Low temperatures tonight will be in the 50s and low 60s across Wyoming.
Sunday was warm across Wyoming before clouds developed into storms in the Cheyenne area. Two rounds of thunderstorms passed through Cheyenne Sunday. Temperatures were hot in Wyoming but not close to record breaking as we saw Saturday. All this weather is associated with a shallow cold front passing through. Relief from the heat will be felt Monday and Tuesday. Tonight low temperatures will be in the 50s. Tomorrow high temperatures will be in the upper 70s for Cheyenne and 80s for western Nebraska and the viewing area.
Sunday, high temperatures will heat up again but average 3 to 5 degrees cooler than Saturday for some relief. Wyoming will also return to the more common summer weather pattern as afternoon thunderstorms will develop in the southeast and northeast part of the state. Near Cheyenne, showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and strengthen as they move northeast into the Nebraska panhandle. Near sunset, northeast Wyoming will see storms pick-up as they move toward Sundance and South Dakota. These storms are capable of producing high winds and hail as head eastward. Breezy winds will return Sunday as a weak cold front moves through the state though gusts won’t exceed 30 mph as it passes. Winds will shift from the northwest to bring cooler air overnight and set up the high temperature drop Monday.
Anyone else feel like they are stuck repeating the same day over and over again? The weather repeating itself is a pattern that is continuing into the end of the week. Meteorologist Ashleigh Bryant has more details on this summer pattern playing on a broken record.
Monday isn’t all clear weather-wise for the holiday. The forecast has brought general thunderstorms west slightly to include southeast Wyoming for the afternoon and early evening hours. This can put a damper on outdoor activities and early evening fireworks though the storms will be less frequent and less intense than what we saw Sunday. As a result, the southeast Wyoming region will remain cloudy until around midnight before it pushes east toward Nebraska.
Sunday, more eastern Wyoming thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon hours. This time there is a more severe risk in northeast Wyoming and the eastern border. Small hail and high winds are the main threat associated with these storms. Outside the storms breezy winds from the southwest will gust above 20 mph across Wyoming in the afternoon and early evening. Temperatures will stay consistent for the next few days as no change of air mass occurs. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s and low 90s while low temperatures are in the mid 50s to low 60s.
Since Wednesday, the pattern has been on repeat. The days begin with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies, rain moves in during the afternoon, and showers continue through the evening hours. This pattern is going to keep on giving. Meteorologist Ashleigh Bryant has the details on the forecast for the next couple of days here.
The cold front pushed through yesterday resulting in some cooler temperatures across the region, but decided to stop along the southern side of the state resulting in an increase in our cloud cover and shower activity throughout the afternoon.
Conditions around the state today turned out to be very nice with mostly clear skies resulting in some pretty warm temperatures. A few isolated showers began popping up during late afternoon in the northwest as well as the southeast.
Weather passed to the south again Sunday as it did Saturday. Rain showers and a few isolated thunderstorms started to develop along the southern Wyoming border. Then they migrated southeast into Utah and Colorado. Clouds in southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska will scatter overnight. Temperatures remained cool Sunday at 80F to the upper 60s for much of Wyoming. Tomorrow will start a warming trend for the next few days as temperatures will reach the upper 80s and low 90s Tuesday and Wednesday. Low temperatures tonight will be in the low 50s to mid 40s throughout Wyoming.
Rain showers missed Cheyenne to the south late afternoon Sunday. All of I-25 between Cheyenne and Ft. Collins got the rainfall. More broadly, Wyoming saw a big cool down after the cold front passed and polar air from the north cooled Wyoming and neighboring states off from summer temperatures. This will continue into Sunday. Not only by temperatures, but weather potential too as south Wyoming will see a few showers and couple isolated storms Sunday afternoon. Low temperatures around Cheyenne and most of Wyoming will be cooler than usual in the 40s and colder in the northwest into the 30s. Tomorrows high temperatures will be in the 70s for most locations. Enjoy this while you can as temperatures jump to the 80s starting Monday.
It was another warm day across much of the Cowboy State with temperatures getting into those upper 80s and lower 90s across much of the region. That is despite the fact that we started to see some increase in our cloud cover.
We saw some excellent weather conditions around the entire state of Wyoming today thanks for that cold front pushing out all of the cloud cover in moisture during the day yesterday. It also left us with some cooler temperatures, but it won't last long.
There were a number of severe thunderstorms across the state today during the early parts of the afternoon and even a tornado just to the east of Scottsbluff Nebraska. This was due to a weak cold front pushing out of the state.
Wyoming was spared from the most dangerous weather and was able to catch up with precipitation totals as it received much desired rainfall. Rain and storms will taper off into the Sunday night hours and skies will scatter temporarily at least until Monday afternoon. Then another round of afternoon thunderstorms will spark mainly northeast of the Sheridan-Gillette region and extend to Rapid City, SD. Bursts of high winds and small hail are likely in the vicinity of these cells.
Sunday has the most concerning weather as severe criteria is not out of the question for eastern Wyoming as starting place as those storms will spill into South Dakota and Nebraska. High winds in excess of 45mph and small hail are possible if a you are to cross one of these severe storm cells. The development of this weather will start in the early afternoon and reach its strength a few hours later as maximum heating approaches. But most of Wyoming will see mostly rain showers, general thunderstorms, and breezy winds for Father’s Day. Low temperatures will be warm tonight mostly in the 60s in the eastern half of the viewing area. Tomorrows high temperatures will range from the 90s in western Nebraska to the 80s and 70s in eastern Wyoming. Out west will drop to the 60s giving the region a much wanted cool down for the next few days.
Besides the hotness, strong storms in east Wyoming developed in the late afternoon. Some were forecasted while others were a surprise. Forecasts indicated severe thunderstorm and tornado watches in northeast Wyoming while severe thunderstorms in the Nebraska panhandle added a brief tornado warning 8 miles north of Scottsbluff at 5:23pm to 5:45pm moving northeast. There was no reissuance or extension but severe storms will continue into South Dakota and west Nebraska for a few more hours into the evening.
Wyoming broke a few high temperature records today. Cheyenne and Rawlins were 3 degrees warmer than their previous records, Laramie topped theirs by 1. We started to see rain shower development in the late afternoon today mostly along the southern and northern state borders with very few isolated thunderstorms mixed in. Rain showers and breezy winds will diminish into the evening Saturday hours. Low temperatures will be warmer than usual since it was hot across the state Saturday. Lows will be in the upper to mid 50s mostly. Tomorrows high temperatures will range from 50 in Yellowstone to 98 in Sidney with similar temperatures to today at near record breaking temperatures.
It was another hot day across much of Wyoming as this warming pattern is expected to continue going toward the weekend. High temperatures across the state were getting ever so closer toward the records.
