Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Wyoming/Western Nebraska
National Weather Service Cheyenne WY
248 AM MST Sun Feb 26 2017

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR BLOWING SNOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 PM MST
THIS AFTERNOON...

.DISCUSSION...Extensive snow pack, cold temperatures, high daytime
humidities, and non-critical fuels will preclude fire weather
concerns through mid-week. Strong and gusty west winds across the
wind prone areas of southeast Wyoming will continue to produce
blowing and drifting snow through late this afternoon. There will
be windy periods much of this week, especially for the normal wind
prone areas. There will be chances for snow early this week, mainly
along and west of the Laramie Range.
