Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
225 AM MDT Tue Mar 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...A stalled front along the Laramie Range interacting
with upper level disturbances will produce scattered showers through
Wednesday. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon
along and west of Interstate 25. The front will shift east into the
plains Wednesday as west to southwest winds increase ahead of a
stronger Pacific low pressure system. This low will track east across
the central Rockies and plains Thursday through Friday bringing
widespread rain and snow to the districts. Minimum relative humidities
the next few days will range from 20 to 30 percent, with fair to good
nighttime recoveries.
