High Winds, Snow As Cold Front Moving Through Wyoming [UPDATE]
UPDATE: Special Weather Statement Through 10 am...Widespread snowfall will occur across Natrona County. Visibility in snow and blowing snow will be under half
mile in heavier bursts of snowfall. 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected by early afternoon. Roads will be slick and snow covered in many locations. Please allow extra time to reach your destination this morning.
A strong cold front is moving through Wyoming according to the National Weather Service, and will continue to push through, through the evening. We'll see areas of strong winds ahead of the front, prompting a high wind warning in Natrona County until 2:00 Monday afternoons. The strongest winds are expected from southeast Fremont County across Natrona County, and eventually up into lower elevations of Johnson County, where wind gusts will occasionally exceed 60 mph.
The Weather Service says we'll see moderate to heavy snow showers are pushing into western Wyoming along the cold front, and that will continue into tonight. We may see light snow accumulations east of the Divide as well. The snow will quickly taper off behind the cold front Monday morning, but a quick 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible in the western valleys with 6 to 12 inches in the mountains.
The Weather Service is also warning of severely reduced visibility and blowing and drifting snow with the heavier snow showers.
