Windy on Wyoming’s Highways [VIDEO]

A fast-moving weather system will slide across the state of Wyoming today and tonight.  Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with a chance for rain and snow showers statewide, but temperatures will remain cool and well above normal.  High temperatures today will remain in the upper 30’s to lower 50’s.  For lower elevations, roads could become wet during the day.  Any roads that are still wet after sunset will then freeze and form black ice.  Slick and icy roads are expected over the mountains and higher elevations today and tonight.  Strong to very high winds will also be found throughout the state today.  Southeastern and some portions of central Wyoming can expect wind gusts between 50 and 65 mph.  There could also be some wind gusts exceeding 65 mph on I-25 (Colorado state line to Wheatland) and I-80 (Rawlins to Cheyenne), which will create a high blowover risk.  Higher pressure will then build over the entire region on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds, unseasonably mild temperatures, and mainly dry weather conditions during this time.  However, gusty to windy conditions will continue to be in the forecast throughout the state.
