May Thunderstorms, Potential for Strong to Severe Storms in the East
It has been a quiet start to the day across the state, but the weather activity will start to pick up later on. A broad trough of low pressure to our west contains quite a bit of moisture. It will move in later today into Wednesday bringing with it cooler conditions, showers and thunderstorms.
Thunderstorm activity today may turn strong to severe especially in the eastern third of the state where damaging winds, hail and heavy rain could accompany the thunderstorms. A possible tornado cannot be ruled out either. After sunshine early on and temperatures reaching into the 70s with some 50s and 60s further west, the thunderstorms will start to form and roll through later today.
The trough of low pressure moving through will bring in cooler temperatures on Wednesday along with more showers and thunderstorms. Northeast and north central Wyoming may see some strong storms for the middle of the week.
