...A developing winter weather storm will bring accumulating snow
to southeast Wyoming Wednesday afternoon through Thursday
Afternoon...

.A late season winter storm expected to bring heavy snow
accumulation across much of southeastern Wyoming and the southern
Nebraska Panhandle. Models have been consistent in the fact that
this descending 700 mb low across Colorado will bring snow though
confidence in the true swath location of heaviest banded snow
still differing at 24 hours out to warrant a winter storm watch at
this time. Some localization topographic higher amounts certainly
possible along the Cheyenne Ridge and northward to the Pine Ridge
in Niobrara County.
