Chance For Snow In Northeast WY, Strong Winds Across Southeast WY
A northwesterly flow will be settled over far northeastern portions of the state today, which will create flurries or light snow showers into the afternoon hours. Watch out for some slick and icy spots along all of I-90, US-85 (Lusk to the South Dakota state line), and WY-59 (Reno Junction to Gillette). Elsewhere, expect partly to mostly sunny skies and mainly dry weather conditions. Strong winds are also possible across central and southeastern Wyoming, with gusts between 35 and 50 mph. Temperatures will become warmer and near or slightly above average, with daytime highs in the 30's and 40's. High winds will become the main concern tonight into early Thursday morning, mainly across southeastern Wyoming. Winds along I-25 (Colorado state line to Chugwater), I-80 (Nebraska state line to Rawlins) and US-85 (Colorado state line to LaGrange) could gust as high as 60 mph by early Thursday morning. For the rest of central and southeastern Wyoming, expect wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph. Some isolated gusts of 50+ mph could also be possible on I-25 near Bordeaux. We will be in between weather systems during the day on Thursday. Expect a mix of sun and clouds, unseasonably mild temperatures, and mainly dry weather conditions statewide. Windy conditions will also continue across central and southeastern Wyoming. Colder and more unsettled weather will then arrive by the end of the work week.
