FRIDAY, APRIL 18th

Happy Good Friday Wyoming!  The weather today will be making this start to the weekend extra good for many across the state will warm daytime highs in the 60's, 70's and even the low 80's in Torrington.  With temperatures boosting unfortunately so will be those ruthless Wyoming winds with gusts at times in the 40 to 50 mph range.  Afternoon hours will come along with the opportunity for isolated thunderstorm development especially prevalent in Northeastern regions such as the Bighorn Basin on over to the Northern Powder RIver Basin.

TONIGHT: This evening temperatures will fall to a cool range of lows in the 40's and 30's with most thunderstorm activity dyeing off by around 8PM.  Later evening hours will see scattered rain showers for upper elevations West of the Divide and the potential for isolated showers in Northern Wyoming.

TOMORROW: Colder air pushing in from the Northwest will result in cooler but still comfortable weather for your Saturday.  Our daytime high in Casper should peak in the mid 60's while some areas such as Laramie do fall into the upper 50's.  Another chance of an isolated afternoon thunderstorm could be seen with the highest chance of rain and thunderstorm activity being in Southeastern Wyoming with Cheyenne seeing a 40% chance of precipitation.

LOOKING AHEAD: Although a little bit rainy at times this Easter weekend should bring along pretty enjoyable weather with highs continued in the 60's and 70's amid mostly sunny conditions.  Sunday highs will boost back into the 70's with dry and sunny conditions for most of the state including Casper and the Wind River Basin while the opportunity of an isolated thunderstorm could be seen Sunday afternoon across Eastern Wyoming.

Your next work week will start of warm and dry with highs continued in the 60's and 70's before cooling mid-week into the 50's with chances of rainfall.  This next cool down will be short lived with highs returning to the 60's for next weekend.
