Today ended up being a bit cooler than what was originally predicted. This is due to the fact that the cold front stuck around for a bit longer and had more strength than the models originally predicted. If you aren’t ready for the fall just yet, don’t worry. This weekend will be back to the warmer temperatures we have been seeing for much of the week. Although, when there is typically warm and clear weather, we get a lot of smoke. Not to worry as strong winds from the west will help clear out much of it most likely prompting those air quality warnings to expire.
Other than the abnormally high heat today, it was a relatively nice day outside. A couple of clouds rolled in and the breeze helped to keep it feeling a little cooler. The haze is back in the forecast as it is still starting to come in from the west. Based on the forecast data, it looks to continue that trend tomorrow as well. Luckily, we aren’t seeing the whole state covered in air quality alerts like we saw last week. Lots of fire weather watches and warnings right now due to the dry conditions, gusty winds, and high heat.
With the cold front gone and high pressure dominating much of the region, we are seeing well above average temperatures all around the state with lots of mid to upper 80s and even some lower 90s in the easternmost portions of Wyoming. This trend is expected to continue throughout the rest of the week and into your weekend. Smoke is trying to take advantage of the situation as we see some more moderate smoke conditions sneaking into the western and central regions of the state. Expect the National Weather Service to issue a few air quality warnings as a result.
It was an absolutely beautiful day outside today. Thanks to the second cold front coming through, we were left with mostly clear skies, cool weather, and a nice breeze. Because it is relatively dry outside and the winds are gusting in some locations, our risk of fire weather has increased resulting in new watches and warnings. The good news is the smoke forecast looks excellent. Skies will be almost, if not completely, clear of haze today and tomorrow.
After many days last week of record high temperatures, we had a cold front come through to help us achieve much more seasonable temperatures. As a result, our rain chances are up and the winds are really strong. This does help out our smoke forecast significantly. On our warning map, there is only one air quality alert for south of Riverton. Based on the forecast, we can expect to still see some light haze throughout the state but not enough for any new warnings to be issued.
Hope everyone was able to stay cool and hydrated today because it was even hotter than yesterday. More records being broken across the board, even as early as the lunch hour. With the smoke starting to back away, we had much less air quality warnings in effect, but the fire weather is still an issue due the winds picking up and the dry conditions. The smoke itself will be clearing out and going toward the far north and far eastern regions of the state. Air quality warnings are expected to stay in effect for the northernmost cities of Wyoming for tomorrow.
With mostly clear skies all week, aside from the smoke and haze, the heat decided to take advantage and move back in. Today, lots of 90s all around Wyoming with a number of records being tied or broken. With these record temperatures and very dry conditions, we have a number of fire weather watches and warnings on our map. Air quality seems to be improving slightly as there are significantly less air quality warnings now compared to yesterday.
We saw some relatively warm temperatures across the state today with temperature being slightly above average, very similar to what we saw yesterday, mostly in the mid 80s. Enjoy it while you can because the next few days look to be very hot with possible record breaking temperatures. Starting off, the smoke was not any better today with much of the entire state under air quality alerts and a few fire weather watches and warnings thrown in due to the dry conditions. Tomorrow morning doesn’t look too great either as our forecast calls for lots of heavy smoke throughout Wyoming.
Our weather is going be all over the place this week as we start to head into the fall season. We started the weekend on the cooler side, then warming up a bit going into the early parts of this week. Now we will be well above average by the end of the week before we start to see some storms and cool down for the weekend. Today was just fine in terms of temperatures. A little bit above average, but we have been above average for most of the season. Unfortunately, when the heat goes up, so does our smoke and fire weather.
That cold front is still struggling to make it through the whole state, but it was able to bring some cooler temperatures today for everyone. Highs all around were in the 70s for most areas and 60s in the northern regions and higher elevations. Smoke is still an issue unfortunately. Air quality warnings are extending from the southwest all the way up toward Casper.
Cooler conditions across the state, when compared to earlier in the week. Believe it or not, this is what we should be seeing this time of year based on almanac data. This year has just been abnormally hot and the smoke certainly isn’t helping out. Speaking of which, much of the state is under air quality warnings as the thick moved back in from the west.
Temperatures today have finally fallen to more seasonable conditions. All it took was a strong enough cold front and some rain. That rain, first off, is helping to clear out the smoke in our region. The only air quality alerts left in effect are out to the far west as they are not seeing a lot of rain from this system. Unfortunately, this doesn’t look like it will last long as the moderate smoke is coming back into the big cities by tomorrow evening.
It was another hot and hazy day around the cowboy state. Temperatures reached the mid to upper 90s for much of the east while the rest saw those 80s. Luckily, it looks to be the last day of these conditions as a cold front is beginning to change things up for the start of September. Already, the smoke forecast is showing the smoke starting to clear up by tomorrow morning and into tomorrow evening. Granted, the smoke will still be heavy enough for the air quality warnings to stay in place.
Hot temperatures are back in the cowboy state for a little bit with lots of 90s all around. Unfortunately, the smoke is back too and it is really thick. Our warning map has the entire state under an air quality warning and the southern regions under fire weather watches and warnings. These dry and hot conditions look to be sticking around for a few days so I expect these to stay in effect for a little bit. The smoke looks to be coming in from the west based off our forecasts and it is really heavy too.
The warm temperatures stuck around today with upper 80s and lower 90s. This will not last that long as we have a strong cold front moving through this weekend. Until then, we are still stuck with very dry conditions around the state. Because of that, we have red flag warnings throughout much of the state as well as air quality warnings in the central regions affected by the smoke.
Today’s temperatures were very similar to those of yesterday despite the increase in cloud cover and shower activity. On top of that, our warning map has kept the air quality warning to the northwest and added more fire weather watches and warnings for much of the central regions of the state. Our smoke forecast shows that the smoke out to the west will be moving to the central and southern sectors of the state by tomorrow afternoon. More than likely, the National Weather service will be issuing air quality alerts accordingly.
Despite the warmer temperatures today, most of which being above average, we saw nice conditions with mostly clear skies and a nice breeze. Our warning map still has lots of fire weather warnings due to the hot and dry conditions. We also have those air quality warnings still plaguing the northwest due to the thick smoke.
Today we saw a slight shift in our weather pattern. There was a cold front out to our northwest that moved through overnight and then stalled out in the middle of the state. That allowed the northern regions to see much cooler temperatures today with highs in the 70s while the southern regions saw highs more so in the 80s and 90s. Despite the cooler temperatures to the north, dry conditions still dominate the state prompting our warning map to have lots of fire weather watches and warnings as well as those air quality alerts for the west.
The heat is back across the state today with lots of 80s and 90s, especially in the eastern regions of the state. Our warning map today is covered with a variety of alerts like fire weather watches and warnings, as well as air quality warnings. This is because the hot and dry conditions are not helping out the smoke or the risk for more wildfires.
Warmer temperatures are back across the state with our fire weather finding it’s way back in as well as the dry conditions are likely to continue into the beginning of the work week. Right now, much of the state has those red flag warnings and air quality warnings in effect. The smoke itself looks to be moving from the south to the north, but it is still going to be moderately heavy for most areas.
Today was a very nice day outside with mostly clear skies, cool temperatures, and a nice breeze with a few strong gusts. As a matter of fact, some of these gusts are strong enough that a few highways have been closed to large commercial vehicles due to the risk of being blow over. The only thing left on our warning map now is a high wind warning in effect to the west of Laramie. Smoke looks to be back in our forecast as well now that the rain is gone.
Lots of strong and severe thunderstorms across the state today. Most of them were localized in the southeastern corner as that is where the cold front was passing through today. On the bright side, we saw much cooler temperatures all around as a result. Most places saw 60s and 70s for the highs, while the northwestern corner saw highs in the 50s. The smoke has gone away for the most part thanks to the strong winds and showers over the past day. On the warning map, there are some high wind watches and warnings in effect to the west of Cheyenne and Laramie.
