Heavy Snow, 60 MPH Winds Possible In SE Wyoming Mountains
Up to two feet of snow and winds of up to 60 miles per hour are possible in the Sierra Madre and Snowy Range mountains of southeast Wyoming this week.
That's according to the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service. The agency posted this statement and graphic on it's website:
More snow is on the way for southeast Wyoming as a second low pressure system moves into the area. Winter Storm Warnings have been posted for the Snowy and Sierra Madre Range where 12-24 inches of additional snowfall is expected to fall. Snow spread into northern Carbon County near Muddy Gap and into the North Laramie Range where Winter Weather Advisories have been posted. An additional hazard with this next round of snow will be strong wind gusts as high as 50-60 mph that could produce areas of blowing snow. Hikers and snowmobilers could easily become disoriented and/or lost from the very poor visibility expected. Be careful out there tonight through Thursday morning.
