Hello, happy weekend. I hope you find yourself among friends and family this weekend, and the weather is hospitable.
At 553PM, MT, Cheyenne was reporting a temperature of 61 degrees with clear skies. Cheyenne found itself in a bit of a cold pool, as the rest of the High Plains, from Nebraska south to eastern Colorado were well into the 70s. This was due to a thunderstorm that had erupted about 15 miles to the northeast of Cheyenne, with cold downdrafts bringing Cheyenne’s temperatures down by 7 degrees just as the day’s temperatures were scheduled to peak.
There is a broad upper level trough moving into the northern High Plains, but if there is any surface development, it will be in western Ontario and the Upper Midwest. After some cooler air sinks south towards Cheyenne, expect a fairly tranquil weekend, albeit chillier than how the work week ended. A west wind on Sunday should bring those temperatures back up, ever so slightly.

I guess Forecast.io isn’t buying the cooldown. Wow. Here is the radar, showing the cell popping up just northeast of Cheyenne.
