Very Large Hail, Flash Floods Possible In SE Wyoming On Sunday
Forecasters with the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service are warning about the possibility of large hail, heavy rain and strong winds in southeast Wyoming on Sunday afternoon.
The agency posted this statement on its website on Saturday:
''Folks in southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle stand a chance of severe thunderstorms over the next few days. We have a small threat this afternoon from roughly 4PM through sunset mainly along and west/south of a line from Sidney to Wheatland to Bosler today. Could see a couple storms producing quarter sized hail and heavy rainfall. Best chances for severe thunderstorms likely Sunday when most areas along and east of the Laramie Range could see very large hail (bigger than golfballs), downburst winds in excess of 60 mph and heavy rains, possibly producing flash flooding Sunday afternoon through early evening. Threat then shifts east into the Nebraska Panhandle for Monday. Stay weather aware through the weekend. We'll keep you up to date on the latest outlooks as we get closer to the event.''
