Thunderstorms, Especially East, with Heavy Rain Possible

A plume of moisture coming up from the southwest will allow for additional slow moving showers and thunderstorms in central and eastern Wyoming later today and tonight.  The east central and southeastern portions of the state look to be in the best position for thunderstorms.  Heavy rain will be the main concern.

Scattered thunderstorms will be around this weekend too, especially on Saturday.  Eastern Wyoming, the Big Horn Mountains and the Sierra Madre and Snowy Ranges will see the best chance of thunderstorm activity.  On Sunday the atmosphere starts to dry out, but a few thunderstorms will still be possible mainly along the state’s eastern border.

Very warm to hot temperatures are expected statewide now through Sunday.  Expect highs in the 80s and 90s with lows in the 50s and lower 60s.
