Not As Cold And Windy Today, Late Snow Likely
Temperatures will continue to heat up today, but will still remain well below average. Expect daytime highs in the 20's and 30's. Windy conditions will also be possible throughout central and southern Wyoming, with gusts between 35 and 45 mph. Wind prone areas of I-25 (Colorado state line to Wheatland) and I-80 (Cheyenne to Arlington) could see wind gusts between 50 and 60 mph. A strong arctic cold front will approach northern and western Wyoming this afternoon and evening and continue to dig southeasterly overnight. Snow showers will be likely with the arrival of this cold front and will continue through much of Saturday. Heavy snow could also be possible at times, mainly for southern Wyoming. Total snow accumulation by late Saturday will stay between 1-3" across lower elevations in central and southern Wyoming, 2-4" throughout northern Wyoming and the southern mountains, and 4-6" over northern and western mountain passes. Reduced visibility, areas of blowing snow, and slick, icy roads will be likely across much of the state. Poor travel conditions are likely across I-80 (Laramie to Utah state line) tonight through Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will also be bitterly cold again on Saturday with daytime highs in single digits and overnight lows falling below zero. There will be another chance for snow on Sunday, mainly throughout eastern Wyoming, but no additional accumulations are expected. Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer for the end of the weekend, but still remain very cold.
