Winter Weather Kicks Off December
December 1st, 2020
The rollercoaster temperature trend has come to an end as winter weather returns to Wyoming. Snow moved into the state during the overnight hours, and off and on snow showers remain possible for many locations across the state this afternoon. For those of us who don’t like snow, however, there is some good news. Accumulations are expected to be minimal, especially in places like Cheyenne. The Capital City likely will not see more than an inch of accumulations. The snowy spot is Rawlins, likely to see about 3 to 4 inches of snow. That is followed up by Laramie and Casper, which are expected to see between 1 and 2 inches of snow. Casper may get more than 2, however that remains unlikely for Laramie. Lander may also see between 2 and 3 inches, but outside of that impacts should be minimal. So far there have been no full road closures as a result of winter weather. Strong winds also remain likely in the far eastern counties through the evening hours today before calming down a bit tonight.
A few lingering showers will be possible in the Medicine Bow region through tomorrow morning, potentially reaching as far north as Casper. These will likely remain west of the Laramie Mountain Range, however Cheyenne still has a very slight chance to see one of these. The snow activity should clear out by lunchtime Wednesday, and the sunshine will likely return late Wednesday. For other locations it will return Thursday morning, which is when the next warmup trend begins. Sunshine will take Wyoming into the first weekend of the new month, and temperatures will climb back into the low to mid 50s in places like Cheyenne and into the mid to upper 40s in places like Laramie and Casper.
