Cheyenne Breaks 125-Year-Old Record for Highest Low Temperature
Monday was one for the record books, with Cheyenne setting the highest low temperature in 125 years, the National Weather Service said.
The airport recorded a low temperature of 53 degrees, breaking the previous Nov. 15 record of 47 degrees set way back in 1896.
The 53-degree low also set a record for the highest low temperature for November, eclipsing the previous record of 49 degrees recorded on Nov. 4 in 1891, Nov. 6 in 1934, and Nov. 7 in 2006.
But the warm weather won't be sticking around. The NWS says a dry cold front is expected to move through this afternoon which will usher in chilly temperatures.

Red Flag Warnings for critical fire weather conditions, are in effect 11 AM to 6 PM today across the southern Nebraska Panhandle and Laramie County, as afternoon humidity falls to 15 percent and winds gust to 40 mph.
