The conveyor belt of moisture coming up from the south will take a break for a few days.  This will leave much of Wyoming with a drier ridge of high pressure overhead for the next several days.  Thunderstorms will be hard to come by today through Saturday.  Areas along the state's eastern border may see a few isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms later today, with other areas likely staying dry.  Sunny skies and settled, quiet weather are expected tomorrow and Saturday.

Get ready for some August heat.  Today temperatures will warm into the 80s, with a few lower 90s in the Big Horn Basin and in the north central part of the state.  As Friday and Saturday roll around expect more 90 degree temperature readings in the east too.
