CHEYENNE — The Wyoming Department of Transportation forecasts more wind and snow during the first week of the year which means hazardous travel around the Cowboy State.
The bad weather begins tonight in the western mountains of Wyoming and will turn into a brief, high-wind event over most of Interstate 80 tomorrow.
Cold, arctic air combined with Pacific moisture on Wednesday will turn conditions into a similar weather pattern that we experienced most of last week.
Wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour are forecast through Wednesday in the western part of the state creating blowing and drifting snow from Evanston to Rock Springs. That weather pattern will continue eastward toward Cheyenne making overall travel along I-80 difficult all the way through Friday afternoon.
