SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM COULD IMPACT THANKSGIVING TRAVEL...

CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING IN THE OCCURRENCE OF A HIGH IMPACT
WINTER STORM FOR MID WEEK. PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW COULD BEGIN TO MOVE INTO NORTHERN WYOMING AS EARLY AS TUESDAY
NIGHT...MOVING SOUTH ON WEDNESDAY AND PERSISTING ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH THANKSGIVING DAY.

AT THIS TIME...IT LOOKS LIKE THE HEAVIEST SNOW AND STRONGEST WINDS WILL OCCUR WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND EARLY THANKSGIVING DAY. SNOW WILL THEN SLOWLY TAPER OFF THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY.

WIND GUSTS COULD EXCEED 50 MPH OVER SOUTH PASS AND ALONG PORTIONS OF INTERSTATE 80 WEDNESDAY NIGHT. IT IS STILL A BIT EARLY TO START ADVERTISING STORM TOTAL SNOW AMOUNTS WITH MUCH ACCURACY...BUT AT THIS TIME A WIDESPREAD ACCUMULATING SNOW IS EXPECTED ACROSS WESTERN AND CENTRAL WYOMING WITH SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS IN FAVORED LOW ELEVATION UPSLOPE AREAS OF THE WIND RIVER BASIN AND IN THE MOUNTAINS.

VERY COLD AIR WILL SETTLE IN BEHIND THE SNOW...HIGH TEMPERATURES
MAY ONLY STRUGGLE INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS ON THANKSGIVING DAY WITH
BREEZY NORTHEAST WINDS KEEPING WIND CHILLS WELL BELOW ZERO.

TWO OF THE BUSIEST TRAVEL DAYS OF THE YEAR COULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY
IMPACTED AS WIDESPREAD HEAVY SNOW...BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW
COULD MAKE TRAVEL DIFFICULT IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE ALONG INTERSTATES 80
90 AND 25. LOW VISIBILITY AND STRONG WIND COULD ALSO LEAD TO
FLIGHT DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS.

ANOTHER SNOW EVENT IS POSSIBLE NEXT WEEKEND WHEN MANY TRAVELERS WOULD BE RETURNING HOME. HOWEVER...DETAILS CONCERNING THIS ARE NOT YET CLEAR SO STAY TUNED.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TRAVEL THIS WEEK...YOU ARE URGED TO WATCH
FOR UPDATES ON THIS DEVELOPING WINTER STORM.
