Winter-like weather has been converging on parts of Wyoming since Wednesday as the Big Horn Mountains and Yellowstone area are receiving significant amounts of snow. Meteorologist Matt Solum with the National Weather Service in Billings says it won't be long before another cold front moves into our area.
The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a freeze watch which is in effect from late tonight through Friday morning. Below freezing temperatures are likely tonight over northern Johnson County. Winds will diminish and the sky will clear this evening allowing for temperatures to fall into the upper 20s to around 30 most locations, especially in low lying areas as well as along the Powder River. The coldest temperatures would likely occur around sunrise Friday morning.
Closer to Sheridan County, Solum said that temperatures will remain cool today, with a high of 50 this afternoon and low's in the 30's into the overnight. Things should be a little bit warmer Friday and Saturday, as highs will be in the upper 50's, but as Solum indicated earlier, another blast of winter may be headed to the area Sunday and Monday.
