Stormy, windy week ahead as temperatures work their way toward 90 on Sunday

GILLETTE, Wyo. — Much cooler weather will be blowing through Campbell County today in the wake of a cold front that brought storms to northeast Wyoming on Monday.

The National Weather Service in Rapid City, South Dakota, is calling for a high of 57 under partly sunny skies. That will come with a northwest wind at 17–21 mph with gusts of up to 32 mph. Skies will be partly cloudy tonight as the low falls to a chilly 36 degrees. Winds will continue from the north at 6–15 mph, but will shift to come from the south after midnight.

That southward shift will bring warmer air back into Gillette for Juneteenth, once again boosting the high to 71 degrees under mostly sunny skies. South winds will have sustained speeds of 9–17 mph with gusts reaching 28 mph. For Wednesday night, partly cloudy skies are forecast. The low will be near 49.

Thursday will see a high near 73 as well as partly sunny skies. South winds will pick up to 13–15 mph with gusts reaching 23 mph. The evening will bring a 50% chance for showers and thunderstorms, mainly before midnight, with increasing clouds. The low will be near 56.

Friday will continue the warming trend with a high near 77. There’ll be a 50% chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon. Skies will otherwise be mostly cloudy. Thunderstorm chances continue into the night as the low falls to around 54.

Saturday is expected to continue the pattern with a mostly sunny day and a high of 79 as well as afternoon thunderstorm chances.

High pressure will build overnight as the low falls to around 56, letting Sunday rebound with sunny skies and a high of 90. By Monday, the high should reach 92.
