Cold Won't Last Long

By  | 

CHEYENNE Hello again! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I know that might be tough considering the much colder temperatures and windy conditions we have been experiencing this week. We had been spoiled up to this point as Southeast Wyoming experienced a November that was seven degrees above normal. While this week’s cold temperatures have been tough there’s good news just around the corner for the Capital City.
The massive trough and subsequent cold air that has flooded our region this week is going to begin to move east and move out starting on Friday. Over the weekend a large ridge of high pressure will begin to dominate the western United States for most of next week returning our temperatures back to around 50 and nearly 15 degrees above average.
In the meantime the Capital City is going to be dealing with below normal temperatures and windy conditions. This will make it feel like in some spots below zero. In addition, we will be seeing some scattered snow showers associated with a weak disturbance working its way down the plains. Don’t’ expect anything in the way of accumulation just a friendly reminder of what season we are in. Finally while I did say a warm up will begin on Friday that will happen to be the windiest day of all with gusts over 50 mph possible especially to the east of I-25
