Winter Storm Blowing In
Written by Andrew-Rossi on February 8, 2018
If you haven’t noticed, the wind is blowing just a bit.
The National Weather Service says that these strong west winds will develop along the Cody foothills today ahead of an arctic cold front, which will drop temperatures sharply later today. Heavy snow is expected tonight and to continue through at least tomorrow evening, and temperatures tomorrow could be as much as 30 to 40 degrees colder than today across lower elevations.
Travelers along highway 120 between Meeteetse and Clark are warned that there will be very strong crosswinds today, and heavy snow is expected in the northern section of the Big Horn Basin, with localized amounts of up to 6 inches. Motorists should plan for difficult travel conditions through tomorrow evening, as winds gusting as high as 35 mph tonight will create wind chills to 10 below zero along with areas of blowing and drifting snow.
