CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Saturday was another wintry reminder for much of Wyoming as snowy conditions swept through the northern and central areas through Saturday afternoon and evening. Thankfully, the snow was light and only heavy in some areas. Accumulations were left to mostly a dusting for most areas where some could have seen measurable accumulations.

Temperatures for tonight will remain cold and get even colder. Lows look to be in the teens and single digits for much of the southern and western areas of the state. That added with the High Wind watch and Winter Weather Advisory that is in place for Elk Mountain and between Wheatland and Chugwater. I-25 and I-80 are areas prone to some possible snowfall overnight and windy conditions throughout the rest of the weekend.

Sunday: Sun, sun, sun! The skies look to clear up but breezy conditions will remain. Temperatures don’t look to warm-up much on Sunday as the cold air still remains in the state from the system that came in from the north. In terms of activity, there doesn’t look to be much aside from those Wyoming winds keeping things chilly.

Long-range: Spring temperatures and conditions are on the way! The first week of March looks great after a relatively brutally cold winter. Signs of things to come? We will see but those temperatures are surely promising to go into the new week.
