Cold, snow and treacherous travel for how long? [VIDEO]
A low pressure system will slowly move out of the state of Wyoming today. Light to scattered snow showers will continue across central and eastern Wyoming into tonight, while there will be a smaller chance for snow in western Wyoming. Strong winds will also be found throughout central and eastern Wyoming, with gusts between 35 and 50 mph. Hazardous travel conditions (poor visibility, blowing and drifting snow, and snow-packed roads) are likely for central and eastern Wyoming through late tonight and possibly into early Wednesday morning. For the rest of the state, expect periods of reduced visibility with slick and icy roads. Temperatures will also be very cold and well below normal statewide today, with highs in the teens to lower 20's. The state of Wyoming will be in between weather systems during the day on Wednesday. While there will be a very small chance for snow during the day, strong winds will continue to create areas of blowing snow and reduced visibility across central and eastern Wyoming. Cold temperatures will also keep roads slick and icy statewide. By Wednesday night and Thursday, another cold front and weather system will push into the state. This will bring even colder temperatures and a better chance of snow to the state.
