Cold Temperatures & Light To Scattered Snow Expected Through Monday

Arctic air will be settled over the state of Wyoming today, which will keep temperatures bitterly cold throughout the region.  Highs will be in the teens to lower 20’s.  At the same time, a low pressure system will be settled over southwestern portions of the nation.  This will force plenty of moisture and atmospheric instability into Wyoming.  Expect cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with light to scattered snow showers throughout much of the state today.  Generally small new accumulations are expected, but roads will stay slick and icy across the entire state.  This stationary low pressure system will remain over southwestern portions of the nation on Saturday and will then slowly propagate east into Wyoming on Sunday and Monday.  Cloudy to mostly cloudy skies, very cold temperatures, and light to scattered snow shower activity will remain in the forecast Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.  Once again, generally small new accumulations are expected, but roads will likely stay slick and icy during this time.  Warmer and more settled weather arrives by Tuesday and Wednesday as higher pressure starts to build over the region.
