Winter Storm to Impact Wyoming Travel This Weekend [VIDEO]
A winter storm set to move across Wyoming this weekend is expected to make for difficult travel, particularly in the northeast and east-central parts of the state.
K2 Radio Meteorologist Don Day of Dayweather, Inc. says developing snow Friday through Sunday will result in slick conditions on roadways elsewhere in the state, with the worst impacts likely on I-90 and I-25.
The western half of Wyoming will see developing snow showers through Friday. Overnight Friday and into Saturday morning, snowfall should develop along I-90 and I-25 including Cheyenne, Douglas, Casper, Sheridan, Sundance, Worland and Newcastle.
Saturday will also see snowfall covering I-90 and I-25, especially along the Wyoming-Nebraska border. Northeastern and east-central Wyoming will be the hardest-hit by the storm as it continues to develop Saturday and into Saturday night.
Overnight Saturday into Sunday morning, snowfall will extend to the west to include Lovell, the Shirley Basin, Elk Mountain, Laramie and Cheyenne. That will make for slick road conditions in those areas, including U.S. Highway 20-26 and Interstate 80.
In northeast Wyoming, slick road conditions are expected Saturday through all of Sunday.
