CHEYENNE, Wyo —  It will be unseasonably warm, dry, and breezy in southeast Wyoming this week, according to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne.

A high wind warning is in effect for the I-80 corridor through the Laramie Range, with gusts of 60 mph expected, through 6:00 p.m. Sunday. Interstate 25 between Chugwater and Wheatland will also be under a high wind watch from 6:00 p.m. Sunday until 9:00 a.m. Monday.

Highs in the mid-60s are expected Monday afternoon east of the Laramie Range, with highs in the mid-50s west. Thursday should be even warmer, with nearly identical conditions.

A cold front will move through the region Monday night and drop temperatures on Tuesday about 10 degrees, the NWS said.
