Winter storm to hit Wyoming, poor travel weather likely [VIDEO]

A low pressure system and cold front will move into the state of Wyoming today. Cloudy skies with light to scattered snow showers will be possible across western Wyoming today. Clouds will thicken across the rest of the state.  Snow will then push into south-central Wyoming later this afternoon and then throughout the rest of the state later this evening. Temperatures will also be colder and closer to average statewide, with highs in the 20’s and 30’s.  Snow will begin to intensify late tonight through early Tuesday across central and eastern Wyoming. Winds will also increase and become strong by Tuesday morning. Poor visibility due to moderate snowfall and blowing snow will be found throughout much of central and eastern Wyoming. Icy and snowy roads will also be likely. Meanwhile, expect lighter snowfall in western Wyoming, but reduced visibility with slick, icy roads will still be likely.  This low pressure system will slowly move out of the region on Tuesday. Light to moderate snowfall will continue to be possible for central and eastern Wyoming, especially early in the day. Poor visibility with icy, snowy roads will be likely through mid-day. However, reduced visibility and slick, icy roads will continue for the rest of the day. Strong winds will also continue to create blowing snow. Elsewhere, expect a smaller chance for snow, but slick and icy roads will remain in the forecast. Temperatures will also be very cold and well below average, with highs in the teens and 20’s.  Another cold front and weather system will slide across the region on Wednesday and Thursday. Expect cloudy skies, even colder temperatures, and another round of snow. Reduced visibility with slick and icy roads will continue to be found throughout the state during this time.
