Ground Blizzard Conditions Possible on I-80 Friday-Saturday
Portions of Interstate 80 in southeast Wyoming could see gusts up to 65 mph tomorrow through Saturday, which, combined with the recent snow, could make for ground blizzard conditions.
A High Wind Watch is in effect for the north Snowy Range foothills, including Arlington and Elk Mountain, from Friday morning through Saturday evening.
"Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines. Widespread power outages are possible," the National Weather Service in Cheyenne said. "Travel could be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles."
Those with travel plans will want to keep an eye on the forecast for the latest updates.
