Wyoming Winds Return, Changing Weather This Weekend
After a brief break from the wind, it will return today and continue tonight for many portions of the state. Southern and central Wyoming will experience the brunt of the wind. High wind prone areas along I-80 around Elk Mountain and Arlington and along and to the west of I-25 near Bordeaux will have winds gusting up to 60 mph at times. This wind, however, and the sun will make for a much warmer day. Temperatures will reach into the 40s and even lower 50s in the east, with 20s and 30s for the mountains and for areas further west.
The weekend will start out with sunshine, dry conditions and mild temperatures. We will be in between storm systems on Saturday, so other than pockets of strong wind the weather will be favorable for travelers.
The next cold front moves in on Sunday. Snow showers are expected to develop in the northeast that day and spread southwest through the state that afternoon and night. Although it will still be fairly mild in the south, temperatures will start to cool off along and behind the front. Expect the snow to continue through Sunday night, with accumulations expected. Be aware of slick roadways and sharply colder temperatures by Monday morning.
