Snow Not Finished in Wyoming
Next Cold Front Is Not Far Behind
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A weekend of snow they said. It will be cold they said. It is snowy and cold but the snowfall has not been as heavy as originally forecasted and the worst is over. There is another period of snow showers before we get a break Monday. Cheyenne and the east half of the state is forecasted an inch to two more of snowfall until then with exception to mountainous terrain and the western border that will incur several inches of snow.
The first wave of snow showers have concluded. From here on until Sunday evening we will see light isolated snow showers throughout the state. Cheyenne reported 3.4″ and Riverton had 1.3″ of snow in the last 24 hours. Many watches, warnings, and advisories have expired around the state. Central Wyoming was spared from much of these. Now, western Wyoming and Carbon and Albany county host what’s left of Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories which expire Sunday afternoon and evening. Overall, the snowfall accumulations were less than forecasted. Road conditions have mostly moderate delays. Overnight temperatures are in the double digits and teens. Tomorrows highs will not rise too much into the teens and twenties with additional cold air advection from northerly cold winds.
Winds are not much of a factor besides the Rock Springs area and the southwest of Wyoming this evening blowing up to 30 mph which will cause some blowing snow. Winds will decrease throughout the state into tomorrow with very light breezes for the foreseeable future. Monday morning Wyoming skies will clear for the day and evening for a brief break before the next cold front approaches later Tuesday. The most significant weather will occur Wednesday throughout the state. Temperatures will drop even more mid week bringing back the cold from the record highs we saw earlier this week.
