Experimental storm total snowfall graphics are now being generated at NWS offices across the country. These snowfall graphics provide a range of snowfall possibilities in order to better communicate forecast uncertainties. Expected, high-end, and low-end forecast snowfall totals are all included.

SYNOPSIS:   

Fire Danger Transitioning to A Cold and Wet Pattern Sunday

A cold front will move through on Saturday and will shift winds to the west behind the front, with wind gusts over 25 mph expected across the state, and a few wind gusts exceeding 45 mph in the Cody Foothills. It will be dry and warm ahead of the front, increasing fire danger in the low elevation grasses. Today is NOT a good day to burn anything outside, especially along the Cody foothills, and from South Pass to Kaycee, including the Casper area each afternoon.

Rain and snow will increase across the western mountains and valleys on Sunday, spreading east of the Divide on Monday. The airmass moving in on Monday will be cold enough to produce mainly snow on both sides of the divide, with a measurable snow possible just about anywhere. A cool and wet pattern will persist through the week next week.
