CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - We wrap up a snowy weekend not completely socked in snowfall though temperatures did take a dive over the last 48 hours. Snow flurries will cease in the Sunday evening hours and clouds will clear by Monday morning. Enjoy this warming up to freezing temperatures as by Tuesday evening Wyoming will receive another winter event. Tonight’s lows are single digits or negative single digits. Highs tomorrow will range from the 20s to 30s.

A warming of 25-30 degrees is welcomed after near 0 temperatures overnight.

Wyoming snow accumulation totals were less than originally forecasted for the weekend. Casper has the highest total at 6.1″ for the Wyoming reporting locations. Cheyenne totaled 4.4″ after it added an inch from Saturday. Winter warnings and advisories have been slowly disappearing off the map since Saturday and gone at this time. Road conditions took a shellacking Sunday with partial road closures from Cheyenne to Evanston along I-80 with black ice, slick spots, and blowing snow. The rest of the state sees moderate to high travel delays after several inches of snowfall accumulation. These conditions will improve marginally Monday and Tuesday with near freezing temperatures for the highs before the next snow event. Winds are relatively light for the time being. Gusts will increase slightly to the mid and upper 20 mph range in the eastern half of Wyoming by Monday afternoon and into Tuesday morning.

After a short lull in winds throughout the state, gusts will increase in speed to the mid 20s...

By late Tuesday northern Wyoming will have another frontal boundary start to move in starting another round of snow showers. Model data shows half a foot of snow in several locations throughout the state but as the last weekends snow did not verify those same numbers, several inches may be closer to the actual amounts.

Still early, but much of Wyoming will get a share of snow by Wednesday.
