Current Forecast

Dec 16/10 AM: Light snow will continue late this morning along and west of a line from Rawlins to Douglas. Visibilities will be reduced below a mile at times in falling snow and patchy fog. Motorists will encounter hazardous travel conditions with slick roadways, including Interstate 25 from Douglas westward. For the latest road conditions in Wyoming, dial 511 or check www.wyoroad.info.
[6:15 AM MST Saturday, December 16, 2017]: Winter weather conditions will impact travel across much of southeast WY and the western NE Panhandle today and/or tonight. Snow is expected in northern areas, roughly along and north of a line from Rawlins to Wheatland to Chadron. The snow will begin this morning and continue through early Sunday, with the heaviest accumulations (2-5”) expected in Converse county and northern Carbon county. Slick and snow covered roads are expected, along with areas of low visibility. After 7 PM, fog and freezing drizzle will develop along and east of the Laramie Range. Ice accumulations are possible from this evening through Sunday morning, possibly resulting in very dangerous travel with glaze ice on roadways. If traveling today, check road conditions prior to venturing out by dialing 511 or visiting wyoroad.info for Wyoming or 511.nebraska.gov for Nebraska.
A big shift in our weather pattern is expected next week across southeastern Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle as a strong cold front sweeps southeastward across the Rockies and out onto the High Plains. Daytime temperatures in the mid 30s to lower 50s Monday through Wednesday will be replaced by teens and 20s on Thursday with the potential for significant snowfall across the region. Temperatures at daybreak on Thursday are expected to be some of the coldest we have seen so far this winter, ranging from the negative single digits for areas west of Interstate 25, and single digits to lower teens east of Interstate 25. Potential impacts to travel from snowfall are projected late Wednesday through Thursday, so those planning on starting their Christmas travel across southeastern Wyoming and western Nebraska should pay close attention to later forecasts and updates.
