The National Weather Service says snow is expected to start in central Wyoming by Monday afternoon and spread to the east by Monday night.
A winter storm warning includes the cities of Laramie, Rock Springs, Casper, Rawlins, Riverton and Lander. A winter storm watch is posted for Cheyenne, Douglas and Gillette.
