SYNOPSIS: A significant winter storm over the Great Basin will impact much of the area beginning today across the north and central with snow, heavy at times, through Thanksgiving Day. The heaviest snow is expected to fall from Wednesday evening through Thursday morning across central Wyoming.

Colder, upslope flow will develop east of the Continental Divide Wednesday with areas form Casper to Lander looking most favorable for the heaviest snow amounts.

Strong northeast winds will likely cause areas of blowing and drifting snow, with areas of very limited visibility across portions of central and southern Wyoming, including Interstate 80. White-out conditions and ground blizzards are expected across Sweetwater county. Details of this upcoming winter storm are below. In general, those who are planning to travel this holiday should pay close attention to the timing and expected impacts of this storm.
