Snow for the Mountains and West; Wind for the East
The conveyor belt of moisture from the Pacific continues. Many of Wyoming’s western mountain ranges will continue to see good snowfall for awhile longer. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for a bit longer in the northwest including the Teton and Gros Ventre Mountains and the Wind River Mountains. Winter Storm Warnings are in place through midnight for the Sierra Madre and Snowy Range in the south.
Some of the lower elevations will cash in on some snowfall as well. A weather disturbance moving out of Montana and into Wyoming later today and overnight will bring a few additional snow showers to the eastern third of the state. The Big Horn Mountains will pick up some snow too.
The other big weather story will be the wind. Central and southeastern Wyoming will be hit especially hard by the wind from time to time. High Wind Warnings remain in effect through 5PM for those portions of the state at which time winds will gust to 65 mph at times. The strong, gusty winds are expected to continue on Friday and Saturday as well.
