Another Winter Storm Approaching

Written by on April 12, 2018

Winter isn’t done with us yet. The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for northwest Wyoming, including Yellowstone National Park.
Up to 19 inches of snow could fall between now and Friday morning in some areas, although 1-3 inches are expected in the Cody region. The winter weather advisory is in effect for Cody, Jackson, Buffalo and Afton as well as the Bighorn, Wind River and extreme western mountains.
Additionally, the National Weather Service says that the snowfall will combine with a strong north wind this evening into tomorrow morning, causing reduced visibility. Travelers are advised to plan on slippery or slushy road conditions, including during the morning commute tomorrow.
The Weather Service says snow is expected to spread across northern Wyoming today before winding down in the north Friday afternoon and the eastern part of the state later Friday. A winter storm watch is posted for portions of northeast and eastern Wyoming, including Gillette, Sheridan and Lusk.
