As you take to the roadways to travel for the weekend conditions will initially be overall favorable for your holiday travel.  Highs on Friday will peak in the 30's and 40's for most areas East oft he Divide with Cheyenne and Torrington possibly soaring into the 50's.  Dry and primarily clear skies will make for dry roadways but strong winds could cause problems for those driving high profile vehicles or pulling light trailers.  Lows Friday evening are expected to fall into the teens and twenties under mostly clear and dry skies.

SATURDAY: A clear and dry day for areas of Central and Eastern Wyoming but West of the Divide snow picks up and begins to sift across the Rockies into the afternoon and evening resulting in late day rain/snow mix to snowfall into your Saturday.  Highs will again be slightly above average mostly in the 30's and 40's before a push of cold air along with that snow into the evening.

SUNDAY: Chances of rain/snow mix to snowfall will be prominent in the forecast to end the weekend making for less ideal conditions for your holiday travel.  Temperatures will fall around 10-15 degrees as compared to Saturday's highs only peaking in the 20's and 30's to start the new week.  Heaviest of snowfall can be expected for mountainous areas of Western Wyoming although accumulations will also be possible for lower elevations of Central and Eastern Wyoming.

LOOKING AHEAD: Temperatures level out in the 20's and 30's for next week along with chances of scattered wintry precipitation.  Roadways will not be as favorable as those seen this week so do be careful while getting out there and traveling to see family and friends for the holiday.
