Cooler Already With More Storms Ahead
By: Jordan Frazier
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The cold front has moved through much of the state today resulting in much cooler temperatures for the northern and western regions as well as increasing our rain chances statewide. Most of our red flag warnings as well as our air quality alerts have expired as the front helped shift the winds and bring some rain to help calm down our dry and smoky conditions. Speaking of which, our smoke forecast for tomorrow shows very little smoke throughout much of the region, so I do not expect any new air quality warnings for a bit.
Much of the rain we are seeing today is out to the west where the cold front passed through. The Storm Prediction Center only has Marginal risk extending all the way to Casper. The biggest threat of severe weather today will be those gusty winds and some possible small hail. As the front continues to move through the state into the overnight hours and tomorrow, more severe weather will hit the southeastern side. There is a Slight risk of severe weather with possible flash flooding, gusty winds, and larger sized hail.
Tonight, much of the state will see an increase in cloud cover from this storm system but also cooler temperatures because of the front moving through. Tomorrow, the southeastern corner will start seeing showers early in the morning and the more severe weather will hit around middle of the day and into the afternoon hours. Temperatures will not get above the mid 70s thanks to that cold front. Lows tomorrow night will dip into the 40s for much of the state and conditions will begin to clear out going into Friday and Saturday. By next week, we will warm back up to more seasonable levels with very little chances for rain.
