CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Portions of Interstate 80 are closed in Wyoming because of blowing snow as strong winds persist across much of the state.

On Wednesday, I-80 was closed westbound between Cheyenne and Laramie, in both directions between Laramie and Rawlins and eastbound between Rawlins and Rock Springs.

Interstate 25 in southeastern Wyoming had been closed because of the wind but is back open. The highway is still closed to light, high-profile vehicles between Cheyenne and the Colorado border because of the blow over threat.

Winds gusts up to 60 mph are expected to continue in southeastern, southwestern and central Wyoming through the evening.

The northwest flow bringing the wind to the state is also bringing snow to the western mountains. The National Weather Service says the Tetons could get up to 4 feet.
