Several cities in southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle could see near to record-high temperatures today, the National Weather Service in Cheyenne says.

If the mercury in Laramie can climb to 56 degrees this afternoon, just one degree warmer than what's forecast, it would break 1954's daily record high of 55 degrees.

And if Cheyenne can hit 64 degrees, just two degrees warmer than expected, it too would break a 70-year-old record.
