CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A late spring snowstorm returned much of the Wyoming landscape to more of a winter scene and hampering travelers.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation closed a 50-mile stretch of Interstate 80 between Cheyenne and Laramie on Thursday morning because of winter conditions. The highway was expected to remain closed most of the day.

Winter storm warnings were posted Thursday for areas that included Cheyenne, Laramie, Wheatland and Lusk. Up to a foot of snow was possible in Laramie with higher amounts expected in surrounding mountains.

Casper, Rawlins and Riverton were under a winter weather advisory.

The storm also dumped up to 2 inches of rain in the Buffalo area in Johnson County, prompting a small stream flood advisory because many creeks and streams were already full with snowmelt.
