CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A winter storm could affect holiday travel in Wyoming later this week.

The National Weather Service says the storm is expected to bring snow to much or all of western and central Wyoming on Wednesday into Thursday as winter officially starts.

The Lander foothills and areas around Casper could get between 3 and 6 inches with 4 to 8 falling in the mountains nearby. One to three inches of snow is expected at lower elevations elsewhere.

Strong winds could also cause blowing and drifting snow.
