Not As Hot With Even More Showers & Thunderstorms

An upper-level weather system and cool front will continue to slowly move across the state of Wyoming today.  Expect morning sunshine with thickening clouds by the afternoon and evening hours.  There will also be a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms statewide.  Any storms that develop could be strong to severe and capable of producing hail, gusty winds, lots of lightning, and heavy rain, especially across eastern Wyoming.  Temperatures will also be not as hot today.  Expect closer to normal temperatures for central and eastern Wyoming, with daytime highs in the 80’s.  Unseasonably hot temperatures continue in western parts of the state, with daytime highs in the 80’s to lower 90’s.  High pressure will build over western Wyoming on Thursday and Friday, while a northwesterly flow will set up over the rest of the state.  Expect hot and mainly dry weather conditions for western Wyoming during this time.  Elsewhere, we will see seasonal temperatures with hit or miss showers and thunderstorms.  For Independence Day, expect very warm to hot temperatures with only a small chance for showers and thunderstorms.
