Colder Temperatures With Rain And Snow Expected
A strong Canadian cold front will continue to push south today, which brings significantly colder and well below average temperatures. Daytime highs in northern Wyoming will stay in the 30's, 40's in central and southeastern Wyoming, and lower 50's in southwest parts of the state. Temperatures today will be around 30 to 40 degrees below average. Snow showers will be possible across northern Wyoming through the early afternoon, while a mix of rain and snow is expected for central parts of the state until this evening. Rain showers will be confined to southeastern portions of the state today. Rain will then mix with and turn to snow tonight across central and southeastern portions of the state. Roads could be slushy with some accumulating snow along I-80 from Laramie to Arlington tonight. Black ice could also develop on I-90 and northern parts of I-25 (Casper to Buffalo). Otherwise, expect mainly wet roads for eastern Wyoming, while roads remain mainly dry in far southwestern Wyoming. Visibility could also be reduced at times for central and southeastern Wyoming today and tonight due to areas of patchy fog and rain/snow shower activity.
Expect early fog and clouds throughout eastern portions of the state tomorrow. Snow showers will also be possible early on Friday for southeastern Wyoming. We will see partially clearing skies later in the day with cold and breezy conditions.
