Blizzard Conditions Possible for Parts of Wyoming by Mid-Week!
Even though we officially made it to Spring a couple weeks ago, we are still talking wintry conditions across the West. Not at all unusual for this time of year and March tends to be the snowiest month of the year for many states.
This upper level low pressure system is currently dropping some snow across parts of the intermountain west from Salt Lake City, Utah to Reno, Nevada. Southern Nevada and parts of Arizona and California are not being affected by High Winds as High Wind Warnings are widespread across much of the area through the remainder of the day today.
Winter Storm Watches are already in effect for much of the state of Wyoming, with a few counties under a Blizzard Watch meaning conditions will be favorable for blowing snow yielding white-out conditions by Wednesday morning’s commute to work. Timing remains to be snow for the E Wyoming and a few counties in Western South Dakota materializing Tuesday afternoon and lingering into much of the day Wednesday.
The high winds will be a defining factor for rapidly deteriorating conditions by Tuesday; however, the amount of snow will be nothing to sneeze at either. Snow amounts could range upwards of 12+ inches around Casper, WY with localized heavier amounts a bit farther north of close to 2 feet.
