More Snow, Possible Sub-Zero Temps In SE Wyoming This Week
But more snow and very cold temperatures are expected on Tuesday and Wednesday. The agency posted this statement on its website on Sunday evening:
Very cold temperatures are the main story for this upcoming week as we stay in the deep freeze. Any lingering snow this evening looks to move off to the east and southeast through the early morning hours with sunny skies in the morning. That will change as we get into the afternoon as another arctic airmass spreads into the area. A front looks to approach Monday evening which will bring increasing chances for light snow Monday night into Tuesday morning. Highs Monday look to range from 17 at Elk Mountain to 31 at Alliance. Widespread light snow looking likely Tuesday and Wednesday as the front stalls across northern Colorado. Single digit highs forecast for communities west of the Laramie Range both Tuesday and Wednesday. To the east, looking at highs struggling to hit 20 both days. Frostbite and hypothermia risks will be high from Tuesday through Thursday morning before temperatures begin to warm slightly. Coldest night looks to be Wednesday night into Thursday morning when we could see dangerous overnight windchills. Stay warm, dress in layers and cover exposed skin. Keep the kiddos warm each morning during their wait for the school bus. Avoid prolonged exposure to these brutal temperatures to avoid frostbite. Stay tuned to later updates on snow amounts for Tuesday and Wednesday in later updates.
