CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -
Over the past several days spring like weather set in over Wyoming; however, this is coming to a close. Winter Storm Warnings, areas in pink, including Sierra Madre and the Snowy Mountains are under the warnings until Thursday at 11am. This area will see snow accumulations of 8-16 inches of snow Wednesday into Thursday. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect, for the areas in purple, including Sheridan, Jackson, and Yellowstone until Thursday at 12am. This region will see between 1-4 inches until Thursday morning. High Wind Warnings are in effect for part of Carbon and Albany counties until tomorrow at 5pm. High Wind Watches are in effect for Cheyenne, Wheatland, and Laramie until tomorrow at 2pm; however, these will likely be upgraded to High Wind Warnings.
Snow will enter the western part of the state first starting in the very early morning hours tomorrow and spread east. Another band of moisture will be pushing southward into the state from Montana. Some areas will experience rain first because the cold air will not meet up with the moisture. Once the cold air sets in the state the rain will switch over to a wintry mix then snow showers. This will cause very messy conditions on the road ways. Winds will be ramping up as the cold front rolls through which will result in blowing snow and reduced visibility causing for another headache on the roadways.
Another arctic airmass will bring very frigid temperatures starting Saturday as high temperatures will be in the teens and overnight lows will be in the single and even negative digits!
