Even Colder With Early Snow Today, Mild & Quiet On Friday
There could be a few early flurries or light snow showers this morning, mainly across southern portions of the state, as a cool front and weather system move out of the region. Expect areas of reduced visibility with slick and icy surface conditions along I-80 between Arlington and Cheyenne into the late morning hours. Elsewhere, roads stay mainly wet with only isolated slick spots. Higher pressure will then build over the region by the afternoon and evening hours. We will see gradually clearing skies and breezy to gusty winds for the rest of today. Temperatures, however, will be even colder and slightly below normal statewide. Daytime highs will be in the 30's and 40's. High pressure will be the main weather feature on Friday and for much of the day on Saturday. Expect minimal cloudiness, mainly dry weather conditions, and breezy to strong winds. Wind prone areas could see winds gusts between 35 and 50 mph at times on Saturday. Temperatures will also be warmer and above normal for the end of the work week and start of the weekend.
