eastern Fremont County, 10 to 14 inches in the Riverton/Lander
area, 5 to 6 inches around Kinnear and Pavillion. Locally
higher amounts will be possible between Riverton and Lander.
* Wind and visibility... north wind 20 to 30 mph with gusts around
40 mph in open areas creating blowing and drifting snow and
visibilities under one quarter mile at times. The winds will
diminish this evening.

drifting snow may significantly reduce visibility and could
make travel rather difficult. Careful footing is advised as
there will likely be hidden patches of ice and deep puddles of
water beneath the fresh snow cover.

blowing snow are expected or occurring. This could make travel
very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel keep some food,
water, and an extra flashlight in your vehicle in case of an
emergency. Check the latest Road conditions at wyoroad.Info or by
