Road Impact Forecast for Monday, May 23 [VIDEO]

A large trough of low pressure will be settled over the entire west coast and Rockies today, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  As a result, a southwesterly flow will transport plenty of moisture and atmospheric energy into the state of Wyoming during this time.  Expect early sunshine with afternoon/evening clouds and isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Any storm that develops will have the potential to be strong to severe, which could produce brief periods of heavy rain, gusty winds, hail, and frequent lightning.  Temperatures will also be mild and close to average.  By Thursday and Friday, the low pressure system that has been settled over the west coast and Rockies for the past several days will finally move into Wyoming.  This will bring slightly cooler temperatures and even more unsettled weather.
