A large storm system moved through the region this weekend, depositing over 20 inches of snow on Casper Mountain, with 5 to 10 inches of snow around Casper. Some of the higher valley locations recorded 2 to 3 inches of very wet snow, however most areas below about 6500ft did not change over from rain, or only did so very briefly.

Cold air remained behind for Sunday night and Monday morning as a hard freeze hit much of western and central Wyoming.
