Weather

TUESDAY Oct 21st

Like yesterday today is looking exceptionally warm, but this time around also on the windy side.  Highs will peak in the 70's again from Cheyenne up to Gillette down to Casper and Riverton while Sheridan could hit the toasty 80 degree mark.  If not the 70's, 60's will be seen for other cities East of the Divide under increasingly cloudy skies into the late afternoon.  West of the Divide cool and cloudy conditions will be seen for much fo the day with rain possible from Evanston up to Yellowstone.  For upper elevations it will be all about the accumulating snowfall with less than half an inch possible around Yellowstone Lake.

Tonight: Rain will drift East of the Divide this evening but should primarily only be seen along the I-80 corridor of Southern Wyoming.  Central and Northern regions should stay dry and breezy under partly cloudy skies.  These partly cloudy skies will make for less than ideal conditions to view the Orionid meteor shower tonight but if you do catch some clear skies overhead bundle up and go take a look!

Wednesday: A passing cold front sweeping across the state will make for a noticeable drop in temperatures for the middle of the week. Highs will fall into the 50's and 60's for tomorrow under mostly sunny skies, still comfortable and right on par with where we should be for this time of year.

Looking Ahead: After our mid-week drop temps will climb into the weekend ahead returning to the 70's for Friday and Saturday under dry and sunny skies.  Then... another drop, the fall roller coaster continues as temperatures slide into the 50's by next Monday for a chilly start to the new week.
