An Arctic Cold Front Brings Cold & Snow To The State
A strong arctic cold front has already pushed through northern and central portions of the state and will continue to dig south for the late morning/early afternoon hours. This weather system brings dramatically colder temperatures to the state of Wyoming today. High temperatures have already been reached and temperatures will only fall for the afternoon and evening hours. Expect temperatures this afternoon to be in the teens and 20's. Snow showers will also be found throughout much of the state this morning and early afternoon and then lessen by the late afternoon/evening. The hardest hit areas will be northern and central Wyoming as well as the southern mountain and the Summit between Laramie and Cheyenne. Northern Wyoming can expect 3 to 6" of snow with higher amounts over the mountains, while central Wyoming can expect 2 to 5" of snow. Southeastern Wyoming will see smaller accumulations with 1 to 3" expected. The far southwest corner can expect only brief periods of snow and small, if any, accumulations. Hazardous roads conditions will also be likely today into Tuesday morning throughout northern, central, and southeastern Wyoming. Roads will quickly freeze and remain slick and icy into Tuesday morning. Roads could also be snowpacked in areas, especially across northern and central Wyoming and over the Summit between Laramie and Cheyenne.
Another cold front brings bitterly cold temperatures and even more snow to the region on Tuesday.
