Arctic Air and Light Snow Returning [VIDEO]

An Arctic cold front and weather system will approach the state of Wyoming today and will then move across the region later tonight into Friday.  Expect thickening clouds, breezy to strong winds, and near average temperatures (30’s and 40’s) statewide.  Winds across southern portions of the state could gust between 35 and 50 mph.  Light snow showers will develop across far western Wyoming during the afternoon and early evening hours and will then push east across the rest of the state later tonight into early Friday.  Roads will likely become slick and icy as snow showers develop and visibility could also be reduced at times due to on-going snow and blowing snow.  High winds will also return to southern portions of the state tonight, with gusts between 50 and 60 mph.  The more wind prone areas could see gusts up to 65 mph into Friday morning.  Breezy to strong winds will be found elsewhere.  Cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with light to scattered snow showers will continue throughout the state on Friday.  High winds will be possible through mid-day for southern Wyoming and will then lessen for the rest of the day.  Watch out for blowing snow, reduced visibility, and slick/icy spots on roadways.  Generally small (1-2″) new accumulations are expected.  Temperatures will also be significantly colder and well below average, with highs in the teens and 20’s.
