CASPER, Wyo. — Smoke from Canadian wildfires will continue to impact breathing and visibility in Casper on a day that is otherwise sunny and warm.

That’s according to the National Weather Service in Riverton, which said above-average temperatures are expected throughout central Wyoming today. The forecast high for Casper is 80 degrees under sunny skies — as sunny as the smoke from Canadian wildfires allows.

“Smoke will linger, but favorable flow aloft should help to decrease smoke this evening,” the NWS in Riverton shared on Twitter.

Skies should be mostly clear tonight as the low falls to around 54 degrees.

Rain chances pick up Tuesday through the rest of the week with variable chances throughout. Tuesday will see a high near 77 with increasing shower and thunderstorm chances from 20% in the morning to 40% in the afternoon lasting through the evening hours. The overnight low will be around 54 degrees.

Wednesday will start off much like today, mostly sunny, and reaching a high of 81 degrees, but there’s a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. That will persist at 50% through the evening as the low again falls to around 54.

Similar weather will be in store Thursday and Friday with mostly sunny mornings, highs near 80 degrees and afternoon thunderstorm chances. There’s a 40% chance Thursday and a 70% chance Friday, if the forecast holds up.
