Winter Storm Taking Aim on Wyoming
By Don Day posted Mar 17, 2010 at 11:46AM
The warm temperatures and sunshine that is covering Wyoming is going to give way to a strong and cold storm system plunging south out of Canada on Thursday and Friday. This storm system will bring a dramatic change in the weather beginning in northern and central Wyoming Thursday with areas of rain and snow and possibly even a thunderstorm. The worst weather will develop Thursday evening and Thursday night in central Wyoming where heavy snow will be likely in places like Casper, Douglas, Riverton, Lander and Rawlins. By Friday morning, heavy snow may be found along the I-80 and I-25 corridors of eastern and southeastern Wyoming. Snowfall of 4 to 8 inches will be likely on the plains of central and eastern Wyoming by Friday afternoon with heavier amounts of 8 to 12 inches possible in the mountains. Snowfall amounts will be lower across the far northeast and southwest areas of the state. Hazardous travel and livestock weather conditions are likely late Thursday through late Friday.
