Most Likely Areas for Severe Storms Today

Map showing the potential where severe weather could occur across western and central Wyoming
A weak disturbance in the southwest flow aloft and an upper level jet will combine with a moist and unstable atmosphere across northern Wyoming for the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. The most likely area for strong to severe thunderstorms will be along and northwest of a line from Jackson to Cody.  The rest of the Big Horn Basin and Johnson County could also see some strong to potentially severe storms.  Also storms could produce brief torrential rainfall with the potential of localized flash flooding or mud slides.
