CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne is likely to get some rain in storms that will kick off later this morning into the afternoon, but drier days are ahead.
The National Weather Service in Cheyenne has pegged rain chances at 70% today with a high of 61. While meteorologists aren’t expecting to see severe-level storms, there is a good chance for a decent amount of lightning and locally heavy rainfall this afternoon. The best chances for rain will be in southeast Wyoming, from Cheyenne to Douglas to Saratoga, meteorologists said in the forecast discussion.
Rain chances begin tapering off tonight, starting at 50% and falling to 30%. The overnight low will be near 46.
Friday starts off with a 20% chance for storms that will last the day. The high, like today, will be stuck in the 60s, albeit a bit warmer at 64. By evening, drier air will have settled over southeast Wyoming and skies are expected to clear. The forecast low is 41.
Through the weekend and into the work week, skies should be clear and sunny. That will help return the high to the 70s, starting with 74 on Saturday and hitting 79 on Sunday and 78 on Monday. Overnight skies also will be clear with lows in the mid- to high 40s.
