CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

Winter Storm Warnings, in the pink including, Casper and Winter Weather Advisories, in the purple including Cheyenne, are in effect until tomorrow at 5PM. This is due to a decent amount of moisture will be starting tonight across the state with heavy snow possible at times. The most moisture will be in the central part of Wyoming overnight. This is where most of the snow accumulation will occur including the areas under a Winter Storm Warning. Casper will see about 6-8 inches of snow with localize heavier amounts in some regions. Cheyenne should expect 3-6 inches depending on where the heaviest snow bands are located. Localized heavier amounts exceeding these totals are not out of the question and should be expected. Winds are going to be picking up tomorrow causing blowing snow on the roadways reducing visibility. Wednesday temperatures are going to be cooler in the lower 30s to the 40s.

Well have you heard the news? If you have been on any type of social media over the past couple of days, you have heard of the POTENTAIL for a Winter Storm this weekend. Right now it is still in the Pacific Ocean and is already bringing moisture to the western states. The low will track south of Wyoming and move to the northeastern of the state. This set up is classic for Wyoming and the Panhandle to accumulate a significant amount of snow. The questions are still the intensity of the storm, how much snow will fall, and the duration of the storm. This system will cause major impacts over the weekend. If you are planning on traveling you might want to rethink that. This system is still days out, but by 48 hours till the system arrives we will have a better understanding of what we can expect in terms of snowfall and timing. Be ware of the click bait on the web right now!
