Record Heat After Record Cold in Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Less than two weeks after seeing heavy snow and record cold, Wyoming is now seeing record heat.

The temperature in Cheyenne reached 84 degrees on Tuesday, breaking the record of 83 degrees set in 1976.

On Monday, record highs were set in Casper, Lander, Riverton and Rock Springs.

It wasn’t too long ago that the state was experiencing heavy snowfall and below normal temperatures. On May 2, Cheyenne set a record low temperature of 9 degrees and was digging out from more than a foot of snow.

The National Weather Service says the hot weather has quickened the snowmelt, causing rivers and streams to rise to near flood stage in some areas.
