Current Weather Story

515 AM MST Friday, January 17 – High Wind Warnings are in effect for a large portion of southeast Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle from 10 AM MST today until 11 AM MST Saturday. The strongest winds are generally expected to occur between about 2 PM and 8 PM MST today, but are expected to remain strong through the duration of the warning. Wind gusts 65+ MPH will be common, leading to a high blow-over risk for light/high profile vehicles, especially on north to south oriented sections of roads. In addition to the high winds, snow showers are expected to increase across the region today. Most areas outside of the mountains will see very little accumulation. However, the combination of snow and strong winds could lead to sudden reductions and visibility and/or slick roads. Use extreme caution if driving across the area today. For road information, dial 511 or visit wyoroad.info or 511.nebraska.gov.
Travellers along Interstate 80 can expect periods of blowing snow in 50 mph winds for areas west of Laramie, Wyoming through tonight. Visibility will be reduced to one quarter of a mile or less at times. Persons travelling west of Laramie should be alert for potential snow squalls that will quickly reduce visibility, making for potentially dangerous driving conditions. For the latest road conditions and travel alerts from the Wyoming Department of Transportation, visit WyoRoad.info on the web, or dial 511 on your phone.

16/810PM: Greetings! Good news, the weather looks to start cooperating after Saturday morning. Looking at dry weather, less wind and warmer temperatures Saturday afternoon through Tuesday. Warmest day looks to be Tuesday as high pressure builds over the area. Look for unsettled weather to return after Wednesday as next low pressure system begins to move into the area. Could be looking at fairly widespread light snow and colder temperatures returning to the area Thursday into Friday next week. Enjoy!
