Snow Returns for Southeastern Wyoming Tonight
November 23rd, 2020
All last week the possibility for snow was thrown around for Friday Night. That never came to fruition. A few days later however and that same region now sees a chance for snow again, only this time it looks like it will happen. A thin line of snow is expected to set up over Southeast Wyoming during the overnight hours tonight before the main line sets up over Northern Colorado. Impacts for Wyoming at least are expected to be minimal: nowhere is expected to reach even half an inch of accumulations, much less an inch. The only places that may see accumulations would be the likes of Cheyenne, Pine Bluffs, Laramie, or Rawlins. Locations outside of those will likely not even see snow (with the exception of a few locations in the Nebraska Panhandle). Down in Colorado however the impacts will be more pronounced as measurable snowfall is expected. Anyone with a commute from/to Colorado should give themselves extra time for travel in the morning.
Once that moves out the Wyoming winds will take over the headlines again. Wednesday looks to bring some powerful winds to the middle of the state, reaching as far southeast as Laramie. And while it doesn’t look like Cheyenne will see anything crazy, the Capital City could easily join in on the fun. Casper will be seeing sustained wind speeds in excess of 30 mph with gusts over 60, and places like Rawlins and Gillette will be joining them. When Thanksgiving arrives on Thursday, strong breezes will still be expected and there is also the possibility of some more light snowfall around the state. The month of November however will end on a warm note as temperatures climb back to the upper 40s/lower 50s by the weeks end.
