CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The cold front pushed through last night resulting in heavy snowfall for the northern regions and strong wind gusts with low wind chill values for the southern regions. Isolated snow showers all around the state will be back in the forecast throughout tomorrow, but the worst in terms of accumulation amounts are done with. About 2-3 inches of snowfall is expected in the far western regions of the state like Jackson, Yellowstone and Dubois with many of the other cities expecting under an inch. Just be sure to keep that winter coat handy as these showers will be spread out and can hit at any time of the day. Temperatures tomorrow are likely to be below the freezing point so it will fall as snow and accumulate too.

The good news is that wind gusts are only going to be strong during the daytime hours with them calming during the overnight and early morning hours.

Overnight tonight, expect one of the coldest of the week with temperatures ranging from the negatives out in the far west to low teens in the southeast. Snow showers shouldn’t be much of an issue but wind chill values will certainly be in the negatives. Tomorrow, isolated snow showers are back in the forecast with strong winds from the northwest being present throughout much of the day. High temperatures are expected to be just below or just above the freezing point. As we head toward the end of the week, clouds begin clearing out, winds begin calming and temperatures start warming.
