Southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle will have to deal with a host of winter weather this week.
According to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne, there will be heavy snow tonight into Wednesday, strong winds in the wind-prone areas of southeast Wyoming Wednesday night into Thursday which could impact travel, and very cold overnight lows each morning from Thursday through Saturday.
16/540PM: Greetings! A look at southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle weather for the upcoming week, calls for increasing chances for snow Tuesday. A low pressure system will move through Colorado during the day Tuesday, with snow beginning west of the Laramie Range tomorrow morning. As the low tracks into eastern Colorado, look for snow to spread east across the southeast Wyoming Plains into the Panhandle. Bulk of the snow is going to fall tomorrow night into Wednesday morning, with significant snow accumulations along and south of a line from Wheatland to Alliance. Winter Storm Watches and Warnings are in effect for parts of extreme southeast Wyoming and the southern Nebraska Panhandle, Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. Snow expected to end from west to east Wednesday afternoon. May have a brief period of strong winds in the wind prone areas of southeast Wyoming Wednesday night into Thursday that could impact travel. Very cold overnight lows each morning from Thursday through Saturday. Stay tuned!
Fortunately, this week's forecasted cold won't be nearly as brutal as last month's historic arctic blast that brought some of the coldest temperatures the area has seen in the last several decades on December 21-23.
