Get Ready for Cooler, Unsettled Weather Again
It will be another gorgeous late April day across the Cowboy State. With high pressure in control for one more day, temperatures will warm mainly into the 50s and 60s with a few lower 70s possible. The far northwest will see a few spring showers, with other areas staying mainly dry. Strong, gusty winds are expected along portions of I-80 around the Elk Mountain and Arlington areas where a High Wind Warning is in effect through 9 PM.
A strong cold front moves through the state on Tuesday. Showers will move from north to south throughout the day. The northwest, northern Big Horn Mountains and northern Wind River Mountains will see snow mix with the rain to then switching to all snow later on. Temperatures will turn cooler as well.
Late Tuesday into Wednesday portions of eastern Wyoming, especially the southeast corner will see the precipitation intensify. Higher elevations, including stretches of I-80, will see a rain/snow mix to all wet snow, with accumulations expected. A Winter Storm Watch has been posted for southeast Wyoming Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon. Showers, mixed showers and some higher elevation snow will also still be found in portions of central and northern Wyoming as well. Wednesday will be chilly with highs in 20s and 30s, with a few 40s in the west.
