Winter Weather On The Way

Dec 19, 2011

Those hoping to drive across Wyoming for the Christmas holiday may face some difficult driving conditions as early as Wednesday.  Chris Jones with the National Weather Service office in Riverton says the first storm could hit the state Wednesday and Thursday.                 

“Produce widespread snowfall across the state  that includes areas east of the Continental Divide, so people should be alert to changing travel conditions Wednesday night and then also continuing through the rest of the week.”

Jones says to expect three to six inches of snow with some strong winds and colder temperatures.

“And that will leave icy, snow packed roads for Thursday and even into Friday as it’s going to be cold for the rest of the week.  The strategy is wherever you can get to, get there on Tuesday.”

Jones said that light snow could hit the state this weekend.
