Sunny skies to last through midweek; chance of snow showers to follow

(Gregory Hirst, Oil City)

CASPER, Wyo. — Casper residents have been able to enjoy clear skies for the past several days. That should persist until this coming Wednesday, when the National Weather Service in Riverton is calling for snow showers in the area.

Today, Casper residents can expect temperatures to reach roughly 38 degrees in the afternoon, falling to about 33 after sundown. However, strong winds will make the day feel colder; the NWS reports winds moving in from the southwest will be stronger than 40 mph today.

Monday and Tuesday will see high temperatures ranging from the high 30s to the mid-40s, but a drop in temperature on Wednesday is expected to bring with it some wintry weather. The NWS is predicting snow showers on Wednesday before noon, and then scattered snowfall throughout the rest of the day.

All the while, winds will likely remain strong in the area. Gusts of 38 mph are expected tomorrow, and they should reach up to 45 mph on Tuesday. Even on Wednesday, moderately strong wind gusts of about 25 mph are expected.
