65 Mph Winds, Blowing Snow, Expected In Southern Wyoming
The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service is warning travelers to expect slick roads, snow and strong winds in south-central and southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska panhandle over the next couple of days.
The agency posted this statement on its website:
''Here are the latest winter weather headlines for southeast Wyoming and the northern Nebraska Panhandle. Heavy snow and strong winds are expected in the areas with a Winter Storm Warning where 1 to 3 feet snow in total is expected for the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountain Ranges. A Winter Weather Advisory has been expanded to now include Rawlins, Encampment and Saratoga where 2-4 inches of snow is possible, with higher amounts in the higher terrain. High Wind Warnings are in effect through Monday for the Arlington/Bordeaux/Summit regions. Confidence is increasing that the high winds will spill over into eastern Platte County, and also further eastward from the Southern Foothills into Cheyenne for Laramie County. Wind gusts up to 65mph will be possible. Expect poor visibility and slick roads, especially while traveling along I-80/I-25 where blowing snow can be an issue for travelers at times. Know before you go! "
