Winter Storm Watch issued through Thanksgiving weekend

WYOMING Portions of far western Wyoming are under Winter Storm Watch from late Thursday evening extending through Friday night.

National Weather Service reports, moderate to heavy snow will be possible. Total snow accumulations of 3–6 inches projected for lower elevations, 8–16 inches in the mountains. Winds could gust as high as 35 mph at the higher elevations and up to 25 mph in surrounding areas.

Travel could be very difficult as blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. And weather effects could escalate locally on the western slopes of Wind River Range. Additionally, the hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commutes, especially over the mountain passes.

Elsewhere in state, a major storm over the Four Corners region will bring light snow west of the Divide Thursday night and increase by Friday morning. Snow will move from west to east into Friday night, as the
storm intensifies. Strong winds will remain a possibility, especially for Natrona and Johnson Counties.
