Strong Winds In The Southeast, Chance For Snow In Western WY
The main concern will be high winds across southeastern Wyoming early this morning and then later this evening and overnight. Wind prone areas of I-25 (Colorado state line to Wheatland), I-80 (Nebraska state line to Rawlins) and US-85 (Colorado state line to LaGrange) could see winds gusting between 50 and 65 mph. Elsewhere, winds could gusts as high as 50 mph. Skies will also remain partly to mostly cloudy for much of the state and there could also be a few snow showers in southwestern, south-central, and northeastern Wyoming. Watch out for isolated slick spots across I-80 (near Evanston, Elk Mountain, and over the Summit), I-90 (near the South Dakota state line) and US-85 (Newcastle to the South Dakota state line). Temperatures, however, will be warmer than normal statewide. Daytime highs will be in the 30's and 40's. High winds will continue across southeastern Wyoming into the afternoon hours on Tuesday, with wind prone areas seeing gusts as high as 65 mph. We will also continue to see more clouds than sun and unseasonably mild temperatures statewide. There could be a few early snow showers across southwestern and south-central Wyoming. By Tuesday evening and night, light to moderate snowfall will be possible across the state. Poor visibility and hazardous driving conditions (slick, icy and snowpacked roads) will be possible across central and southeastern Wyoming into Wednesday morning. Icy roads and reduced visibility could also be possible for the rest of the state. Colder, snowy, and gusty conditions are expected statewide on Wednesday.
