That's according to the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service.

 ''We have issued a Winter Weather Advisory beginning later this afternoon for the northern sections of the Nebraska Panhandle. Northern Sioux, Box Butte, and Dawes County are expected to see a small window for accumulating light snowfall. Highest accumulations will be confined to the Pine Ridge, and adjacent surrounding areas. Localized higher amounts greater than 4 inches possible where persistent snow showers occur. Dense fog is expected to persist through later this morning, before eroding away. Expect the gradual dissipation of the patchy, dense fog from west to east. Accumulating snowfall and gusty winds are still expected for the higher terrain west of Laramie.''

Historic Wyoming Hotels

Wyoming's once wild west also incorporated a little luxury. Several fine hotels dotted the state, along trade routes and railroad lines. They have rich histories, and of course, ghost legends.

Wyoming Black History in Pictures

Some of these pictures are part of a collection of photographs and negatives created and used by the Casper Star Tribune from 1967 until the middle of 1995 according to a newspaper article on the donation from February of 2000. In the words of Special Collections Curator, Kevin Anderson, the photographs serve to document "events in our own lives, events in our own history." Others come from a collection of photographs of people who lived in Casper's Sand Bar as found in the Walter R. Jones Papers available in and through the repository. Many others came from the Casper College Western History Center and the Wyoming State Archives from a wide-variety of original sources.
