A ridge of high pressure will help increase statewide temperatures today and through the upcoming weekend.  Many afternoon highs, reaching into the 90′s, may break some daily records.   Expect fairly dry conditions across western and central Wyoming, while there could be a few late-day thunderstorms across the east.  Winds will be strong to gusty today over central and southeast portions of the state.   If weekend plans include being outside, take out the bathing suits and sun block – because temperatures will stay very hot through Saturday and Sunday.
