CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne will see summer temperatures today, with highs ranging from 85 to 95 degrees. Expect scattered high-based showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, possibly with wind gusts over 45 mph, according to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne.

Thursday will maintain seasonal warmth with highs in the 80s. There’s a chance of severe thunderstorms, especially along a frontal boundary. Hail and strong winds may accompany these storms.

Friday brings a higher likelihood of severe thunderstorms, particularly in the afternoon. Some storms may produce significant hail and even tornadoes. A sharp shortwave moving northeast from the Four Corners will drive these conditions, with strong instability and deep-layer shear favoring supercells.

The weekend should see calmer weather. Saturday will be hot again, with highs in the 80s and 90s. Winds will pick up in the afternoon. Sunday will be slightly cooler, with temperatures dropping a few degrees.

Early next week, temperatures may cool further with a chance of light precipitation as a trough moves through northern Wyoming. Highs could fall to the 70s by Tuesday.
