CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska can expect various weather conditions in the coming days, according to the latest forecast from the National Weather Service in Cheyenne. Isolated to scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms are anticipated to continue into next week, although severe weather is not expected.

For today, the forecast indicates isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, particularly in the mountains and higher terrain, which provide the necessary lift for storm development. However, with cool temperatures and limited instability, widespread thunderstorm activity remains unlikely.

Moving into Saturday, conditions might shift as a low-pressure system from the Four Corners Region begins to influence local weather. This could increase moisture around the Interstate 80 corridor, enhancing the chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Although these are not expected to be strong, their occurrence is likely to be more widespread.

The weather pattern from Saturday night through next Thursday suggests a continuation of isolated thunderstorms into the weekend. By next week, scattered showers are more probable, with temperatures climbing into the upper 60s to low 70s by Monday and Tuesday.

A significant shift is expected by Wednesday, when a cold storm system moves into the area, bringing cooler temperatures and the potential for high-elevation snow showers. This change could result in more widespread precipitation, marking the most substantial weather shift of the week.
