Warmer Than Normal With Strong Winds Today, Mountain Snow Possible
A cold front will move across the state of Wyoming throughout the day today, which will allow for some light snow shower activity across far western Wyoming as well as higher elevations and the state's mountains. Expect reduced visibility with slick and icy roads along I-80 (Utah state line to Rock Springs and over higher elevations near Elk Mountain and the Summit) and WY-28 near South Pass later today into tonight. This will also keep winds strong across central and southeastern Wyoming into the afternoon hours, with gusts between 35 and 50 mph. Temperatures will be unseasonably mild statewide and then turn colder by this evening and overnight. Daytime highs will stay in the 30's and 40's. An upper-level weather disturbance will slide across the area on Tuesday. This will bring another chance for snow to higher elevations and the state's mountains. We also cannot rule out a few flurries or light snow showers across lower elevations, especially across eastern Wyoming. There could be some isolated slick spots, but no major travel concerns are expected. Temperatures will also be significantly colder and closer to average. Breezy to gusty winds are possible at times, but no significant gusting is expected.
