Developing Sunshine With Increasing Winds Today, Chance For Snow On Sunday
An arctic cold front will move out of the region today and drier, milder air will take its place. There will be a chance for freezing fog across eastern portions of the state into the late morning/early afternoon hours. Otherwise, expect developing sunshine and mainly dry weather conditions during the day statewide. Winds will increase and become strong by the afternoon and evening hours, especially throughout central and southeastern Wyoming. Expect wind gusts as high as 50 mph at times. Temperatures, however, will be noticeably colder and below normal across central and eastern Wyoming today, with daytime highs in the teens and 20's. Mild and closer to average temperatures will be found in western portions of the state, with temperatures by this afternoon in the 30's. Dry and mild air will remain settled over the area on Saturday. Expect mostly sunny skies and mainly dry weather conditions during the day. Temperatures will also be warmer and closer to average. Strong winds are expected into early Saturday afternoon, with gusts between 35 and 50 mph. By Saturday night, moisture will move in a northeasterly direction into southern Wyoming, which will create a chance for flurries or light snow. Another arctic cold front will then bring moisture and much colder air to northern and central Wyoming on Sunday. Scattered snow will be possible statewide, especially on Sunday evening and overnight. Light to moderate snowfall is expected across central and eastern Wyoming, while smaller amounts are possible elsewhere. Expect reduced visibility at times with slick, icy roads, including all of I-25, I-80, and I-90, Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.
