Temperatures will warm back up a bit this weekend as the low pressure system moves out and sunshine makes a return. The majority of the snow from this week will melt in most locations, and Sunday will see the warmest conditions we have had since last weekend. The next round of snow looks to move in from the north Sunday night through Monday.
According to the National Weather Service in Riverton, totals as of this morning in Riverton were between 9 inches and close to a foot. Lander snowfall totals were at about 11 inches. It is still snowing in Riverton, so accumulation totals could change.
The final round of snow is arriving today and for most locations will bring the most accumulations we have seen this week. Most places will see either 6" or less with this final round added to whatever has come through so far this week, and sunshine should return Saturday afternoon.
The rest of the week will see widespread snow that will bring most of its accumulation Thursday Night into Friday. It will be more scattered in nature through today and tonight with a couple of organized lines, but once the low pressure system begins to deepen on the eastern side of the Rockies the heaviest snow will begin, especially for Southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle.
The first organized wave of snow is expected to push into Southern Wyoming from the south tonight, bringing some slick conditions to I-80 and some accumulations all along the I-80 corridor heading into Wednesday. This will turn into showers during the afternoon tomorrow before a second wave pushes further north tomorrow night.
The wind train is over for much of Wyoming as the new week kicks off, but now we will be stuck with cooler temperatures and snow chances are on the rise, especially late in the week as the jet stream dips and pulls in more arctic air.
After such a beautiful yet windy day in Wyoming. The fun comes to a stop as cooler air moves into the state and with it some spots of scattered snow showers are to be expected in the overnight hours for some areas in the North and Central regions of Wyoming. Winds will remain for tomorrow and temperatures will move into the 40s with skies having a bit more clouds linger throughout the day. Something to keep an eye on, the chance of seeing some scattered light flurries and snow showers in Natrona and Park Counties throughout the afternoon. Clearing up heading into the night for a clear and chilly one to end the weekend. Long-range: a low from the south looks to move its way slowly towards Wyoming bringing chances of seeing some measurable snowfall across the state into the middle of the week.
Friday night we have the luxury of seeing winds die down around the state. Cold temperatures will linger in the forecast but will warm up quickly as we head into Saturday afternoon. High pressure will sit on Wyoming for Saturday but then be pushed out by a Low from the pacific NW that will bring another cold front with plenty of moisture that will shake things up on Sunday.
The rollercoaster pattern of temperatures we have been seeing this week looks to come to an end this weekend as cooler conditions take hold heading into next week, but that also means an end to the windy pattern as well. At this time it also looks like a decent snowstorm could hit Wyoming next week, but it's nothing more than potential yet.
Another cold front will push south through the Cowboy State tonight, bringing organized snowfall to Northern and Central Wyoming overnight and scattered showers to the southeastern corner Friday morning. Powerful winds will accompany the passing of the cold front in the southeastern corner, and temperatures for Friday will be similar to what they were on Tuesday when the last cold front rolled through.
The next several days for Wyoming will feature up and down temperatures with another cold front set to push through Thursday night, and strong breezes will encompass much of the state on Thursday and Saturday with the southeastern corner of the state not likely to see a break from the wind activity until early next week.
The low pressure is reforming east of the Rocky Mountains as the afternoon hours begin, promoting more precipitation in the southeastern part of the state. This will likely be mostly rain during the afternoon hours with temperatures in the low to mid 40s, however overnight as temperatures drop to and below the freezing point it will all shift into a wet snow. Accumulations are expected to be minimal. Strong winds are also expected as the new low strengthens.
The first weekend of April was filled with above average temperatures and a good bit of sunshine, but a cold front moving through Tuesday night will be a reminder to Wyomingites that April is one of the snowiest months for the state. Accumulations are not expected this time around as things begin as rain and shift to snow after the warm weekend, however more systems later in the week could change that. Drought relief is expected in some areas thanks to this cold front as well.
High-pressure system is sitting pretty along with Wyoming as we end the weekend. Temperatures hit record-breaking in Cheyenne and Casper with 75 degrees in both cities and many more around Wyoming. Monday will shape up to be a partly cloudy day that will see more clouds move in throughout the day. Slight chance of rain showers are possible and Dry thunderstorms in isolated areas are possible as well around SE Wyoming. Winds will be light and temperatures will be very spring-esque.
Conditions are looking perfect for Easter weekend as temperatures soar into the 70s. The chances for stronger winds over the weekend have dropped, and the chances for rain during the middle of next week look to be on the rise, hopefully bringing some relief to drought conditions around Wyoming.
Spring-like weather is taking over as March ends and April begins, making for an extremely pleasant Easter Weekend. Rain chances remain low for the next several days, however drought conditions are likely to continue worsening in Central Wyoming as the warmer conditions build in, raising the risk for wildfires.
Cooler air is beginning to split the state in half heading into the afternoon but high wind warning’s will remain for many areas from 6 p.m. today to 9 p.m. tonight. An elevated fire outlook for Eastern Wyoming and Fire Weather Warning is in place until 6 p.m. for Crook, Campbell, Weston & Sheridan counties.
Fire Weather Warning’s are in effect for- Campbell, Crook & Weston Counties through the rest of the weekend, in addition, there is also an elevated risk for the North East areas of Wyoming on Sunday. The Fire Weather Warning’s are a result of warmer drier conditions that will be sticking around Wyoming for the next few days. In addition, winds increased today and look to be stronger throughout Palm Sunday.
There is one last round of snow showers expected before a pleasant weekend arrives, with some expected to begin today and even more expected on Friday as a cold front move through the state ahead of the warm weekend.
The sunshine has arrived today, bringing a slight break to the snow activity this week. More showers are expected beginning tomorrow afternoon through Friday afternoon, primarily along the I-80 corridor and in the mountainous northwest.
The first week of spring has arrived, and it brings a couple of opportunities for snow showers along with mild temperatures. The snow is expected to be wet and heavy, and will likely be accompanied by strong breezes out of the north.
Cooler air will keep temperatures in the mid to upper 30s in SE Wyoming with the Northern region aiming for the lower 40s. Isolated snow showers are slightly possible in Cheyenne and Casper Monday, with a strong chance of seeing snow in Casper Tuesday night as a Low looks to move in influencing precipitation through much of Wyoming. Snow chances will also be stronger Tuesday night for Cheyenne, as the week progresses, temperatures will be stable on the cooler end of the spectrum. Once we pass the mid-way point, temperatures looking to gain a bit of heat heading into the 40s and for some areas around the state reaching into the 50s looking into the weekend.
Snow showers are possible across Wyoming this weekend thanks to a cold front that will move through the state late on Saturday. The southeastern portion of Wyoming will be avoiding a major hit from a powerful system expected to slam Colorado Sunday and Monday.
Snow will continue to melt into the weekend as the sunshine has returned, allowing temperatures to climb. The next possibility of snow looks to begin Sunday and last through Tuesday, mainly in the form of showers.
