Wyoming Readies For Subzero Temperatures

Another arctic blast is set to batter Wyoming over the weekend. Much of the state at risk of seeing subzero temperatures. And although this week’s windy system is coming to an end, national weather service meteorologist Jared Allen warns this upcoming blast may bring some high winds of its own and even more blowing snow. 

“The winds will definitely stay up especially in the wind prone areas between Laramie and Rollins and then north between us and Wheatland here in Cheyenne. Definitely blowing snow especially with the current snowpack that we have out there. It’s really hung around a lot this year. So that’s really contributing to some travel impacts. Even after they plow, you get some more residual snow that comes over top of it creates slick spots. So please be aware of the drifts and the slick spots that are occurring out there going up from here towards Douglas over to Casper. They’re certainly looking at some good snowfall amounts blowing snow as well. Upwards of at least four inches if not upwards of eight, maybe even locally more, especially in the higher terrain in the mountains.”
