Current Forecast


April 17th - Weekend Update: Clouds early this morning will slowly dissipate through the day with more sun in the afternoon. Still cool with highs in the low to upper 40s across Southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle. Temperatures will throttle up on Sunday - reaching the low 50s to near 60 with sunny and pleasant conditions. But don't let your guard down, big-time cool down and snow likely on Monday across entire region. #WYwx #NEwx.
17/515PM: Greetings! Looks like we return to snow Sunday night into Monday, for most communities in southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle. Widespread snow looking likely for Monday with modest snow accumulations and increased travel impacts. Mountains could see close to a foot of snow through Monday evening, while lower elevations of southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle are expected to see 2 to 4 inches. Cold temperatures continue Tuesday with some light snow across the northern Nebraska Panhandle to maybe Lusk and Torrington through the day. Slow warm up for mid week into the end of the work week, though we are expecting mountain snow to continue for the Laramie, Snowy and Sierra Madre Ranges each day. Travel impacts are expected to be minimal Tuesday through Friday. Stay tuned for later updates on the winter weather event for Sunday night and Monday, as winter headlines are possible.
4/17/2021: Looking back through our archived records, we found an interesting webcam image looking at the Winter Storm of 2009 that resulted in widespread snow for southeastern Wyoming. Interesting enough, that storm ended up dropping 9.8 inches of snow in Cheyenne, which was a record for that day. Thankfully, we have mostly sunny skies today. So make sure to get out there and enjoy the nicer weather this weekend before the next round of precipitation moves in on Monday.
