CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Southeastern Wyoming hasn’t quite reached its peak windy season yet, but the region is nonetheless projected to get a few hefty gusts Thursday.
The National Weather Service in Cheyenne is projecting sunny skies with a high temperature of 82 degrees for Thursday in Wyoming’s capital city. Those conditions are combined with what’s expected to be 15–20 mph winds with 30 mph gusts throughout the day.
Clear skies are also expected to continue throughout the afternoon and into the evening and night, with the low temperature currently forecast at 52. Winds are also expected to decrease to around 5–15 mph as the night progresses.
Thursday’s high should continue a trend that’s been occurring during the current workweek in which Cheyenne gets temperature maximums hovering around the high 70s and low 80s. Cheyenne reached a high of 84 at around 3:53 p.m. Wednesday, per station data.
A slight chance (20%) of thunderstorms is in Friday afternoon’s forecast at the moment, but other than that, the current extent of the station’s future forecasts (until Monday) indicates plenty of sunshine and warm, pleasant conditions to come in Cheyenne’s near future.
