New Experimental Winter Snowfall Graphics and Forecast Information Available Online

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. Specific cities and towns can also be viewed in a tabular format, and can be sorted by county, too. Read More >

A moist pacific storm and associated cold front returned snow to western and portions of central Wyoming Friday afternoon through the day Saturday.  1 to 2 FEET of snow fell across the far western mountains in Wyoming with almost a foot of snow in portions of Jackson Hole.  Most areas east of the Divide saw little or no snowfall from this system, except the Casper area where 4 to 6 inches of wet snow fell on Saturday.
