... Winter Storm Warning in effect from 11 PM this evening to
11 am MST Friday...
The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a Winter
Storm Warning for snow and wind, which is in effect from 11 PM
this evening to 11 am MST Friday. The Winter Storm Watch is no
longer in effect.
* Timing... snow will develop Wednesday night, and become heavy at
times from the predawn hours Thursday through Thursday evening
before gradually tapering off into Friday morning.
* Snowfall accumulation... 12 to 18 inches in eastern Fremont
County, 10 to 12 inches in the Riverton/Lander area, and 3 to 5
inches around Kinnear and Pavillion. There is some potential for
even higher amounts depending on the exact track of the storm
* Wind and visibility... north 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.
* Main impact... roads will become slick and snow covered. Blowing
and drifting snow may significantly reduce visibility and could
make travel rather difficult. Careful footing is advised as
there will likely be hidden patched of ice and deep puddles of
water beneath the fresh snow cover.
A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, and or
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
