WEEKEND Oct 31st-Nov 2nd

Halloween Day:
A treat for you today as far as weather goes with temperatures boosting well above their seasonal averages into the 60's and the 70's for Central and Northeastern Wyoming.  Cooler 50's are to be felt for Southern areas over towards the West side of the Continental Divide.  All areas of the state should remain dry today under sunny skies but with winds for Central and Eastern regions breezy with gusts into the 30-40 mile per hour range.

Halloween Evening: Not quite as cold as the past few evenings have been but still chilly enough to keep a jacket handy as you head out to do some trick-or-treating.  At sundown temperatures will be hanging out in the comfortably cool 40's and 50's but with winds feeling cooler.  Skies will remain dry so no worry in that regard as your kids load up on the sweet treats.

Saturday: Another day with well above average temperatures to enjoy into your weekend.  East of the Divide potentially record breaking highs in the 60's and 70's could be felt with more sunshine and dry weather East of the Divide.  Winds will again be breezy putting a damper on the otherwise nice day.  West of the Divide rain/snow mix and snowfall will kick into gear with the potential for accumulation at upper elevations.

Sunday: After enjoying your extra hour of sleep Sunday morning (see note below) you will awake to much cooler conditions having dropped into the 40's and 50's across the state with the passage of a cold front.  Although Central Wyoming is, as of Friday, expected to remain dry, Western, Northern and Southern areas will see potential for either rain/snow mix or snowfall depending on elevation.  As you head home from your weekend travels mountain passes and even lower elevations at evening hours could be slick.

Important Note: Daylight savings time ends at 2:00am Sunday morning meaning you get an extra hour of sleep before you wake up Sunday.  Adjust those clocks accordingly and enjoy!
