CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The low pressure system we have been tracking from the north the past few days has made it’s way into Wyoming bringing some wintry conditions for many areas Sunday night.

Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for much of North East Wyoming and a Winter Storm Advisory in place for Crook and Weston Counties. In addition, southern Wyoming is looking to get pretty messy as well. Especially in the South East regions.

West of the Laramie range, Winter Weather Advisory is in place for Sierra Madre and Snowy range areas until Monday @ 5 p.m. with a Blizzard Warning in effect for the Northern Snowy foothills.

The big takeaways from this event is that there are very strong winds coming in contact with the snow that will be falling which at times, will be heavy. Mixing the two brings many potential hazards for travelers in those areas. West of the Laramie range, potential snow squalls, white out conditions, and blowing snow are the headlining hazards from tonight going into Monday afternoon.

Good news is, the snow looks to fizzle out in much of Wyoming by Monday evening. However, potential snow showers remain in place through early Monday night.
