A winter weather system moving across Wyoming Saturday and Sunday will bring snow and blowing snow. Travel could be difficult with snow covered roads and white-out conditions possible.
As of Saturday morning, snow was falling west of Laramie causing difficult travel on Interstate 80 between Rawlins and Laramie.
For the Cheyenne area, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 5:00 PM Saturday until 5:00 PM Sunday. The main threats with this system are expected to be one to three inches of snow combining with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour causing blowing and drifting snow.
