A fast moving storm system moved through the cowboy state on Saturday, bringing snow and wind across western and central Wyoming. Steady snow fell across western portions throughout the day and limited any snowfall east of the divide. Strong winds were the main threat in these areas, as well as over the higher elevations. Below are the final snowfall totals from this storm, and highest wind gusts from Saturday.
