Cold front spawns wild weather Tuesday
Laramie, WY – A cold front that moved through Wyoming whipped up thunderstorms, spawning funnel clouds and hail that pelted parts of Natrona County.
National Weather Service meteorologist Al Ross in Riverton said yesterday there were unconfirmed reports of two tornadoes northwest of Casper. Ross says storms also dumped several inches of hail on highway 26 west of Casper.
The Natrona County sheriff's office says there have been no reports of damage or injuries.
The weather service issued several tornado and thunderstorm warnings and watches across central and eastern Wyoming. Penny-size hail was reported at about 5 p.m. 25 miles northwest of Douglas.
There was also minor flooding from creeks and streams in northeast Wyoming following heavy rains.
