Strong to Severe T-Storms in East Later Today; Drier on Friday
Eastern counties in Wyoming could be in for another round of bumpy weather later today and tonight. With plenty of atmospheric moisture in place along with atmospheric energy and daytime heating, strong to severe thunderstorms will once again be of a concern. The main threat with these storms will be for hail, heavy rain and strong wind.
Meanwhile further west, the air is much drier. Central Wyoming and the mountains could pick up a few isolated thunderstorms later today, but much of western Wyoming will stay mainly dry.
Friday will start out with areas fog and low clouds in the the east. Later in the morning and by the afternoon a strong southwest wind will take over and will start to dry the atmosphere out. Sustained winds of 15 to 30 mph are expected, with some stronger gusts. This wind and more sunshine will also bring warmer temperatures back into the state, with highs mainly in the 70s and 80s. There will still be a chance for isolated thunderstorms in the east.
