Winter Conditions Forecast to Creep into Wyoming Over Weekend

Winter Conditions Forecast to Creep into Wyoming Over Weekend

After a long stretch of unseasonably nice weather this past week, Wyomingites can expect normal, December-like conditions beginning this weekend.

Strong, gusty winds will kick up tomorrow morning around most of the state and bring with them light snow after midnight on Saturday and into Sunday afternoon, according to the latest Wyoming Department of Transportation Road Impact Forecast.

We’ll also see a significant drop in temperatures over the weekend, and travelers should be cautious as those snow storms are expected to create black ice along a good stretch of Interstate 80 from Cheyenne to Rock Springs.

Winds are forecasted to guest up to 70 mph hour in the South Pass area. Interstates 80 and 25 will see the highest impacts from the storm, and I-90 will see mild impacts.
