CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne faces a mixed bag of weather conditions this week, starting with foggy mornings and the potential for rain and snow showers today, according to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne.

Visibility has been significantly reduced early this morning, dropping to a quarter of a mile in some areas. However, conditions are expected to clear as the morning progresses, with north to northwest winds picking up to speeds between 15 and 25 mph. While the likelihood of rain and snow persists today, impacts should be minimal.

Looking ahead, Cheyenne can anticipate a turn toward warmer and drier weather from midweek onward. This pleasant shift comes as upper-level ridging starts to take hold, promising above-normal temperatures and plenty of sunshine through Friday. Winds may get gusty in areas known for wind corridors, such as Arlington and Bordeaux, though no severe weather alerts have been issued.

The weekend, however, brings uncertainty with the forecast pointing to another potential storm system that could impact the Rocky Mountain region. Models hint at cooler conditions and precipitation, but the specifics will depend on the evolving weather patterns, including a closed low that may develop over the area.
