Very Warm & Windy Today, Chance For Strong To Severe Thunderstorms

A trough of low pressure and unseasonably strong cool front will move into the state of Wyoming today.  Expect early sunshine with thickening clouds by the afternoon and evening hours.  Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will also be possible, especially across central and eastern portions of the state.  Any storm that develops could be strong to severe and capable of producing hail, lots of lightning, and brief periods of heavy rain.  Windy conditions are also expected statewide today.  Expect wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph, with some isolated higher gusts.  Temperatures will be very warm to hot, with daytime highs in the 80’s to lower 90’s.  By Tuesday and Wednesday, expect noticeably cooler and below average temperatures across the entire state.  Daytime highs will be in the 70’s to lower 80’s.  We will also see sunny to mostly sunny skies and breezy to gusty winds.  There will be a small chance for showers and thunderstorms for far southeastern Wyoming, while mainly dry conditions are expected elsewhere.
