Wyoming has loved to choose between wind and snow on weekends this fall/winter, and this weekend will be no different (luckily it hasn’t really chosen both). The wind should remain relatively calm for the near future, however snow is expected for many of us this weekend, and most places will record at least a couple of inches. Scattered snow showers will be possible for parts of Eastern Wyoming tonight, however impacts will be very minimal with only a dusting expected for places who see it. The measurable snowfall is not expected to move in until Friday night, with the heaviest snow occurring on Saturday.

Timing is definitely not set in stone for this yet, however at this time the main event looks to begin overnight Friday in the form of scattered snow showers. These will solidify and become widespread snow during the afternoon hours on Saturday. Central Wyoming looks to get hit the hardest, and places like Casper as of now are expected to receive anywhere between 4 and 6 inches of snow. Rawlins will also get a good amount, with the potential to receive closer to 8 inches. Likely however it will remain under 6. Riverton could see between 1 and 3 inches of snow, and the same goes for Laramie. Cheyenne will likely see 2 inches at the most, continuing the drought of decent snowfall for the Capital City.

Come Sunday most of the state will see sunny skies return, however the snow is expected to shift southward into Colorado, and clouds from that could creep into the southernmost parts of Wyoming, particularly southeast Wyoming. Cheyenne will likely still be dealing with cloudy skies Sunday, and more snow showers will be possible in the Capital City to open up the new work week.
