CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Forecast for Sunday, March 19, 2017
Good evening! Today was our last day of nice weather for a while, as there will be several chances for rain and snow during the workweek. Until then, still looking at a nice rest of the afternoon and evening, with temps staying in the 60s and 70s for a few hours after the sun goes down. Lows tonight will be in the 30s and 40s. Tomorrow, skies will start out partly cloudy, but increasing clouds and scattered showers will move in during the afternoon. Temps will be in the 60s and 70s so precipitation will be in the form of rain. If you have plans for the evening, you will need that umbrella handy. Overnight, scattered showers will continue, with lows in the 30s and 40s.
Tuesday, isolated showers will be possible during the afternoon and evening hours, with highs in the 50s and 60s. Wednesday, same situation, isolated showers during the afternoon and evening, with highs in the 50s and 60s.
Thursday is the big question mark regarding snow potential. Right now, looking at widespread rain to move in during the late morning and afternoon hours. There could be some moderate to heavy downpours at times. During the evening and night time hours, we will likely see a change over to snow, but with the system already moving out, not expecting much in the way of accumulations in SE Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle. Over towards Laramie and Rawlins, there could be some minor accumulations (1-3 inches).
We will see a break in the active weather for Friday through the weekend, but another system looks to move in early next week.
Have a great afternoon and evening!
