Old man winter is arriving in Wyoming with much fanfare this year. The South-East areas of Wyoming get the brunt of the 80-mile-an-hour winds in the Rawlins, Casper, and Laramie areas, with 4-6 inches of snow forecasted in the lower elevations and 12 inches of snow in higher elevation areas.
According to the weather station, the city of Cheyenne, Wyoming, should receive 3-4 inches of snow city-wide.
Highways such as I-80 and I-25 will be iced over and may be shut down temporarily until the snowstorm, and high winds have subsided.
According to the Weather Center, ”Sustained west winds of 30 to 45 mph with gusts of 45 to 65 mph for many areas. ➔ Wind Prone areas, Gap Wind areas and Ridge Tops could have wind gusts upwards of 70-80 mph at times. ➔ Blowing snow is possible near Arlington/Elk Mountain.”
