Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
314 AM MST Fri Nov 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Strong cold front approaching from the west and northwest this
morning will keep strong winds going today. This front will also
bring heavy mountain snow and a mix of rain/snow to valley floors
west of the Laramie Range before turning all snow this afternoon.
Temperatures will be decreasing behind the front, so afternoon
humidities should stay well above critical levels. An extended
windy pattern over the next several days with afternoon humidities
east of the Laramie Range getting close to critical Sunday and
Monday.
