Gradually Clearing Skies With Cold & Breezy To Windy Conditions Today, Light Snow Redevelops Statewide On Friday
Our latest weather system will quickly move out of the state of Wyoming this morning. We will then be in between weather systems for the rest of the day. Slick and icy roads will continue across southeastern portions of the state, especially over the Summit on I-80, through mid-day. Otherwise, expect partially clearing skies with improving weather and road conditions across much of the state for the rest of today. Winds will increase and become strong throughout the more wind-prone areas later today. We could see wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph at times by this evening and overnight. This will create areas of blowing snow along I-80 from Cheyenne to Laramie, which will lower visibility and keep roads slick at times. Temperatures will also be colder and well below the average for this time of year. Daytime highs will be in the 30’s to lower 40’s. Another weather system and cold front will quickly push across the region early on Friday. Light snow showers will develop in western, central, and northern Wyoming after midnight and will then push into southeastern Wyoming by mid-day. Little to no accumulations are expected. Roads, however, could still become slick at times, especially over the mountains and mountains passes as well as I-80 (Arlington to Cheyenne), I-25 (Casper to Buffalo), and I-90 (Buffalo to the Montana state line). Temperatures will also be even colder for the end of the work week. Higher pressure brings warmer and more settled weather conditions to the state this weekend.
