... Winter storm conditions possible Saturday night and Sunday...

There is greater confidence in the return of winter weather to
much of southeast Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle
Saturday night and Sunday. The forecast models are in good
agreement tracking a strong surface low pressure system from
eastern Colorado Saturday afternoon into central Nebraska Sunday.
This low pressure system may interact with abundant moisture to
produce widespread heavy snowfall.

Widespread rain is likely Saturday afternoon for areas along and
east of the Laramie range. As the upper level low moves into
northeast Colorado Saturday night and Sunday... it will draw much
colder air south across southeast Wyoming and the western
Nebraska Panhandle. Snow levels will start around 7500 to 8000
feet... then drop to 5500 feet early Sunday morning. Winds behind
the associated cold front may be quite strong... with sustained
north to northeast winds of 25 to 35 mph gusting to around 40 mph
late Saturday afternoon through Sunday. This is a favorable
pattern for widespread heavy snow and blowing snow for much of
southeast Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle. Travel
across interstates 25 and 80 could be significantly impacted
Saturday night and Sunday.

There is the possibility that the low pressure system could track
further north... which would mean the heaviest snow would be
further north and much of southeast Wyoming and the western
Nebraska Panhandle would most likely experience light rain and
snow. If planning travel for the mothers day weekend across
southeast Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle... stay tuned
for later updates and statements from the National Weather Service
in Cheyenne on this potential winter storm.

... Major winter storm possible Saturday night into Sunday...

Confidence is growing on the return of winter weather to much of
southeast Wyoming and possibly the Nebraska Panhandle Saturday
night through most of Sunday. Forecast guidance is generally in
good agreement that a strong Pacific low pressure
system... currently moving onshore in the Pacific northwest... will
move into northeastern Colorado Saturday afternoon. This low may
interact with abundant moisture to produce widespread heavy snow.

Widespread moderate rain is likely Saturday afternoon for areas
along and east of the Laramie range. As the upper level low moves
into northeast Colorado Saturday night and Sunday... it will draw
much colder temperatures south across southeast Wyoming and
Nebraska Panhandle. Snow levels look to be initially
high... around 7500 to 8000 feet... but are forecast to fall to 5500
feet early Sunday morning. Winds behind the associated cold front
look to be very strong as well... with sustained north to northeast
winds of 25 to 35 mph and gusts of 40 to 45 mph possible Saturday
evening... persisting into Sunday. This is a very favorable pattern
for widespread heavy snow and blowing snow for much of southeast
Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle. Travel across area interstates
could be significantly impacted Saturday night through much of
Sunday.

The low could track further north... which would mean the heaviest
snow would be further north. If this happens... southeast Wyoming
and Nebraska Panhandle would stay warm and would most likely see
light rain. If planning travel for the mothers day weekend across
southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska... you will definitely want
to stay tuned to later updates and statements from the National
Weather Service on this possible developing winter storm system.
