Road Impact Forecast for Friday, April 8 [VIDEO]
High pressure will be the main weather feature throughout the state of Wyoming today. Expect plenty of sunshine, light to breezy winds, and mainly dry weather conditions. Temperatures will also be mild and well above normal, with highs in the 50’s and 60’s. A large low pressure system will become settled over southwestern portions of the nation this weekend. As a result, a supply of subtropical moisture will be funneled into Wyoming. A cool front will also dig south and collide with this supply of subtropical moisture on Sunday. For Saturday, expect thickening clouds, gusty to strong winds, and a chance for rain showers and possibly a few thunderstorms. Cloudy, overcast skies with significantly cooler and closer to average temperatures will then be in the forecast on Sunday. Rain showers will be likely across lower elevations, while snow or a rain/snow mix is expected for elevations above 7,000 feet. Expect mainly wet roads statewide during the day, but roads will become slick and slushy for higher elevation roads later in the day and overnight. An active and very unsettled weather pattern will continue on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Temperatures, however, will be milder and above normal.
