The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service has posted winter weather advisories and storm warnings for east-central and southeast Wyoming this weekend.

The service is warning about the possibility of up to a foot of snow in some areas:

-Winter Storm Watches have been upgraded to Winter Storm Warnings. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for adjacent areas.

-Forecast snowfall amounts have increased. Accumulations are expected for ALL of southeast Wyoming & the western Nebraska Panhandle. The Winter Storm Warning highlights areas where 8-12 inches of snow is possible. The Winter Weather Advisory highlights areas where 3-6 inches with locally higher amounts can be expected. An additional 4-8 inches is possible in the snowy/Sierra Madre mountain ranges.
