CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Rain showers continue for southeastern Wyoming as the new system is springing into action Sunday night. Rain looks to continue throughout much of the night until the temperatures hit a freezing point for the rain to transition into the snow. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for parts of Laramie and Albany counties through Tuesday Afternoon with Winter Weather Advisories in place for Laramie, Converse, Platte, Albany & Carbon counties.

About this system: it is tricky to be certain due to the warmer temperatures at the beginning of this event. Snow looks to begin early Monday morning but won’t begin to accumulate until roughly Monday evening as temperatures begin to fall and stay in the freezing range. Expect travel to be difficult Monday night and Tuesday morning.

With the difficulty of pinpointing timing. this could also impact true accumulations. For areas at about 6,000 feet specifically around the Cheyenne area could see about 4-8 inches of snow accumulated by the end of the event. Higher elevations could see significant accumulations about 6-12 inches accumulated by the end of the event.

Impacts will be widespread precipitation however areas in the central areas may only see rain and snow mixed precipitations throughout and may not truly accumulate snow. Impacts will be mainly focused in SE Wyoming in regards to snow accumulations.
