Current Forecast

1/1045AM: Greetings! Here's a look at southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle weather for the next work week. Unsettled weather Monday and Tuesday, with afternoon and early evening shower and storm chances. Folks with gardens and sensitive outdoor plants will need to keep a close eye on overnight low temperatures, as frost will be a good possibility Tuesday through Thursday mornings. Make plans to protect your temperature sensitive outdoor plants. Stay tuned for later updates.
3 AM MDT Sunday, October 2nd – Unsettled weather continues today with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms expected to sweep across the area through this afternoon and tonight. Brief heavy downpours and strong/gusty winds may accompany the stronger storms. May also see increased chances for hail along the I-25 corridor and further westward into Laramie. Stay tuned throughout the day for all weather updates. #WYWx #NEWx
7PM 10/1 – Despite the cooler weather and rainfall we've seen in the last week or two, September 2022 still ended up being yet another warm and dry month for much of the area. This was largely thanks to the record-breaking heat we saw during the first week of the month. Cheyenne tied (with 2019) for its 2nd warmest September on record (since 1873). The warmest September on record was 2015. Despite being the wettest September since 2017, we still ended up drier than the 1991-2020 average. This was the 6th consecutive dry month. The 97F reading on September 7th also broke the record for hottest temperature recording during the month of September. We also remained at 40F or warmer for the whole month, which was only the 4th time on record this has occurred! That part at least was good news for farmers and gardeners.
Scottsbluff also recorded its 2nd warmest September on record, falling behind 1998. After the bone dry August, the 0.85” was beneficial, but the city is still running its 10th driest year-to-date on record. The heat wave earlier this month broke records in Scottsbluff too, with 5 days in a row exceeding 100F. This is the most 100 degree days on record for September. For the year as a whole, Scottsbluff has hit 100F on 20 days, which is the third most on record behind 2012 and 1936. Other cities in our area also had notable weather in September. Sidney recorded its warmest September, breaking the old record from 2013. The 2nd warmest September was recorded in Laramie, Rawlins, and Chadron. Most locations were close to, but slightly below average in terms of precipitation. The only exception was Rawlins, which was above average for the month thanks to the heavy rainfall the last few days! Luckily, September did bring decent rainfall to the areas experiencing the worst drought right now (eastern Laramie county and southern Goshen county in WY, and the far southwestern Nebraska panhandle).
