Snow Inbound To Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Temperatures warmed across Wyoming Sunday afternoon. This was also the time when snow and rain showers started to pop up across the state. This is due in part to moisture moving in from the surrounding western states. There will not be a traditional cold front moving through Monday. Another frontal boundary south of Wyoming will block any deep cold air from filling in behind it. The cold air will deepen east of Wyoming over the central plains. The frontal boundary laying across Utah and Colorado will add some moisture to southern Wyoming to start the week though the most significant snowfall will be held mostly in the Medicine Bow Mountains where a Winter Weather Advisory is issued until Tuesday at 8:00 am. About half a foot of snow in Jackson Hole and the Medicine Bow Mountains are forecasted. The western and northern borders are forecasted to have several inches, 2-4″, and Cheyenne/Laramie is forecasting 1 to 2 inches of snow.
High Wind Watches turned to Warnings Sunday near Elk Mountain that expire Monday at 11:00 am. Breezy winds will be strongest in southeast Wyoming Monday morning to the afternoon hours from 30 to 40 mph at times. After midnight, Tuesday will also be breezy from the start through the afternoon hours reaching the mid 30 mph range from Buffalo to Rawlins and many places east of this line drawn from north to south Wyoming.
After high pressure settles in, there will be steady temperatures near seasonal averages for the week. Few isolated snow showers will occur during the week most likely in northwest Wyoming and the south-central region near Medicine Bow as the terrain in conducive to draw wintery weather. Cheyenne and Laramie can see some some of that overflow of snow from the southwest as will occur at the start of the week.
