CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Residents of Cheyenne can expect mixed weather conditions in the coming days, according to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne. Today, cooler temperatures will persist with a slight chance of precipitation, while the weekend promises a significant warmup.

For Wednesday, the forecast highlights a 20% to 40% chance of light rain and snow showers, particularly across the Laramie Range and adjacent foothills. Highs today will struggle to exit the 40s, although some areas farther east may touch the 50s.

The weather will take a turn for the better starting Thursday as the region begins to warm up under clear skies. By Friday, temperatures are expected to soar into the upper 60s to 70s across most of southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska.

Looking to the weekend, a stable and warm pattern will dominate thanks to a broad ridge over the central U.S. Temperatures will be 10–20 degrees above average, offering a good opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities. However, the weather pattern will shift early next week as a storm system approaches, bringing a chance for more unsettled weather.

Rainfall from Monday through Wednesday could total 0.4–0.8 inches for the plains and 0.75–1.25 inches in the mountains. While precipitation is likely, the exact timing and amounts remain uncertain due to varying model predictions. Snow levels during this period will generally stay above 6,000 feet, indicating that any snowfall will likely be confined to higher elevations.
