A strong ridge of high pressure will continue to be settled over the state of Wyoming for the rest of today and Friday.  A limited supply of monsoonal moisture and atmospheric instability will also be funneled into the region during this time.  Expect early sunshine and then clouds will thicken during the afternoon and evening hours.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected for western and far southern portions of the state today.  Heavy rain will also be possible at times.  Meanwhile, there will be a small chance for showers and thunderstorms elsewhere.  Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be found throughout the state on Friday.  Temperatures will also be very warm to hot and slightly above normal statewide during the second half of the work week.  Expect daytime highs in the 80's and 90's.  An upper-level weather system and cool front will approach the region on Saturday.  This will bring slightly more cloud cover and another chance for showers and thunderstorms.  Temperatures will be not as hot and closer to average for northern Wyoming for the start of the weekend, while unseasonably hot temperatures continue elsewhere.
