Another High Wind Event Heading for Wyoming Thursday

Buckle up for another blast of arctic weather this week as high impact road conditions will once again make driving difficult across Wyoming.

RIVERTON — The blast of arctic weather that rolled across to Cowboy State during Christmas week will continue as we approach the new year.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation reports that moderate to high impact road conditions will continue along the I-80 corridor through tomorrow and most of the week.

Things take a turn for the worse on Thursday as the National Weather Service in Riverton forecasts another high wind event that will bring blowing and drifting snow, black ice conditions, poor visibility, and difficult travel along I-80 and I-25.
