Wednesday Brings More Wind, Snow Chances Dropping
November 18th, 2020
The middle of the week has arrived, and after a weekend full of wind across Wyoming, it is back once again for a good chunk of the state. High Wind Warnings span from Eastern Sweetwater County all the way to far Western Laramie county, and they reach as far north as Natrona county. Parts of I-80 have been closed to Light and High-Profile vehicles since early this morning, and these could still become more expansive during the afternoon hours. Most of these High Wind Warnings are set to expire later this evening, however the one for Southeast Albany county and far Western Laramie county is in effect until 5 AM tomorrow morning.
As for snow chances, the I-80 corridor west of the Laramie Mountains has a good chance to see some snow showers in the morning to afternoon hours of Thursday, with some rain showers being possible for Cheyenne tomorrow afternoon. Casper may also get a lick of those snow showers. Accumulations would be reserved for the higher elevations, and even then they are unlikely. As for this weekend however, the chance for snow in southeast Wyoming has dropped considerably with the central part of the state likely to see nothing. The system that would bring us the snow looks to form east of Wyoming over Oklahoma and Kansas and mainly bring rain eastward towards the Appalachians. This doesn’t mean the chance for Cheyenne to see snow late Friday/early Saturday is zero, but it is pretty close. For a place like Casper the chances for snow were already low, it may as well be negligible at this point. It does however still look like the Denver region of Colorado will see a few inches of snow on Saturday.
