How Much Snow Did the Latest Storm Bring Casper?
The latest Spring storm, although a nuisance, brought us that 'much needed moisture' as we move toward the heat of summer. At least things will be green for awhile longer.
I like green. The snowfall totals were significant for Casper and the state.
Around 30 inches fell in the southern Big Horn Mountains and on Casper Mountain, according to the National Weather Service.
Reno Hill (elevation 7900 feet, 22 miles southeast of Casper) – 34"
Sundance – 24”
Lusk – 20" with drifts up to 8 feet
Lander – 17"
Casper – 16.2" makes this their heaviest snowstorm on record so early in the season; the third-heaviest October snowstorm; and the 10th-heaviest overall in Casper weather records.
Sheridan – 9"
Hang on, I'm predicting we'll have one more big storm. It'll come after the leaves are on the trees. Wait and see!
