Winter Weather Returns to Southeast Wyoming Tuesday
Strong winds and snow are expected to impact southeast Wyoming over the next several days.
The National Weather Service in Cheyenne says strong winds are expected to develop over the area early Tuesday morning and continue through the late afternoon or early evening hours.
The Service says 55-65 mph gusts are possible, especially along Interstate 80 between Rawlins and Cheyenne and along Interstate 25 between Chugwater and Wheatland.
Up to a foot of snow is expected to blanket the Snowy and Sierra Madre ranges Tuesday through Wednesday night, while many lower-elevation areas will see light accumulations.
Gusty winds along and east of I-25 may lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow and the potential for at least minor travel impacts across the area Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Drivers are being advised to check the weather forecast and road conditions before heading out. The latest road conditions can be obtained by calling 511 or visiting wyoroad.info.
