Cheyenne National Weather Service: Look Before You Lock!
With temperatures in southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle expect temps in the low 90's to over 100 degrees over the next few days, the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service is warning people about the potential danger to children and pets left in cars.
The agency posted this statement on it's website on Wednesday:
"With high temperatures in the 90s and lower 100s for many areas of southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle Thursday, it won't take long for vehicles to become dangerous places to leave children or pets. As this graphic illustrates, it only takes a few minutes for 80 degree outside temperatures to soar above 110 degrees in closed vehicles. Heat related deaths are preventable. Please, look before you lock!"
