Weather Update: Warm and Breezy Today, Chance of Snow Later
We’ll have nice weather today but could see snow again later in the week. Wind is in the forecast across FreCo as well, and the fire danger is up.
From the National Weather Service Office, Riverton:
Upper Wind River Basin-Wind River Basin-Lander Foothills – Including the cities of Dubois, Riverton, Shoshoni, and Lander
…Strong gusty wind and low relative humidity increase fire danger this afternoon…
Southwest winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph, combined with minimum relative humidity of 10 to 15 percent will produce conditions favorable for fires with rapid rates of spread and erratic fire behavior from noon today to 7 pm this evening.
Check on observed and forecast weather conditions and notify the local fire department before lighting an agricultural burn or burning trash and rubbish.
