Despite temperatures in the mid 30s today and Friday, we are forecast to see mid 50s on Saturday. However the temperatures are going to plummet like a lead brick beginning Saturday evening with the frigid weather continuing through Monday night
Hits 106 spoke to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne this afternoon and they say Laramie’s morning low on Sunday October 25th will be a chilly 5 above but that’s still a tad bit warmer then the -3 below record set in 1997. We’ll be colder on Monday October 26th, with a forecast low of -4 below but that’s still far enough away that the National Weather Service doesn’t think it’s too likely we’ll hit the -10 below record also set in 1997.
Cheyenne’s record low for Monday is -5 below while the forecast is calling for 3 above.
From what the National Weather Service has told us, it sounds like it’s a bit more likely that Cheyenne would break a record instead of Laramie but still not incredibly likely.
What will make the difference is clouds and wind. An on staff meteorologist said things could shift.. if winds pick up and clouds clear out, a meeting or breaking of the record lows in Laramie or Cheyenne would be POSSIBLE.
