Brace for a week of winter
Snow, blustery winds, cold
December 20, 2004
The week leading up to Christmas will be typical winter in Wyoming with the works in weather. We enjoyed a wonderful weekend of sunny skies and balmy 40+ degree weather Saturday and Sunday. Strong fronts moving into the area this week will change all that.
Temperatures will drop significantly through the day on Monday into the low 20s. Strong winds will pick up with gusts expected as high as 40 mph. A High Wind Warning has been posted for high-profile vehicles for the eastern side of the state for Monday and Tuesday. Wind chill values will drop the temperature into the -20s for anyone who will be outside working in the weather. There is a 20% chance of snow in the beginning of the week.
Cold, windy and sputters of snow will be the story through about Friday. Skies are expected to clear and be sunny around Friday with temperatures warming up a bit into the 30s for Christmas Day and Sunday. Those of you coming from warm climes wondering what on earth to bring to wear here, youíll want a warm hat to cover your ears, warm gloves, a good coat, clothes to layer, socks with some substance and shoes with some decent tread. If you canít find anything like that in the stores there, donít worry, youíll find everything you need at our stores here in town.
