At the risk of dropping the “s” word and touching off months of bitter cold weather, we thought we’d give you a heads up about the weekend weather forecast.
According to the National Weather Service out of Riverton, we can expect a blast of cold weather coming our way beginning tomorrow night. If you’re planning to go to any area football games tomorrow night, the temperatures should be around 40 degrees with wind gusting up to 20 miles per hour by kickoff.
By Saturday morning, light snow will hit the region, later turning to rain and snow with west wind gusts up to 35 mph by Saturday afternoon. Low temperatures are expected to drop to about 15 degrees Saturday night, with more snow on the way Sunday and a high temperature only around 25 degrees.
The coldest snap will occur Sunday night with low temperatures dropping to around 5 degrees above zero.
The good news is weather patterns are expected to improve through Halloween week with high temperatures improving to around 50 degrees by Wednesday. By the weekend those temperatures will climb into the lower 50s with a high on Halloween Saturday of 54 degrees.
Meanwhile, here is the latest Road Impact Report from the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Stay warm this weekend and watch for snow and icy conditions through Sunday. Be safe out there!
