Seasonal Temperatures & Breezy To Windy Conditions Expected Through Sunday
A ridge of high pressure will strengthen and become settled over the state of Wyoming for the rest of today and Saturday. Expect sunny to mostly sunny skies and mainly dry weather conditions statewide. However, winds could become strong and gusty across wind prone areas of central and southeastern Wyoming. We could see winds gusting between 35 and 50 mph. This could also create some areas of blowing snow and isolated slick spots over higher elevations of I-80 (Elk Mountain, Arlington, and the Summit) and WY-28 near South Pass. Temperatures will also be warmer and closer to average for the end of the work week and start of the weekend. Daytime highs will remain in the upper 30's and 40's. A weak cool front will slide across the area early on Sunday. Expect a very small chance for flurries in far northeastern Wyoming with the arrival of this cool front. Otherwise, conditions remain mainly dry. Temperatures could become a few degrees cooler, but it will still be close to the average for this time of year. High pressure returns for the first half of the work week, which will create unseasonably mild and mainly dry weather conditions statewide.
