...Potential for accumulating high elevation snow for southeast
Wyoming Thursday night through Saturday morning...

The next spring storm will move ashore into the Pacific Northwest
tonight, then track southeast toward the Four Corners region by
late Thursday afternoon. Showers and a few thunderstorms will
develop along and west of Interstate 25 Thursday afternoon. Rain
will become more widespread across the remainder of southeast
Wyoming Thursday evening. Rain will change to snow for elevations
above 6500 feet late Thursday night and above 5500 feet Friday and
Friday night. This storm system may produce hazardous winter travel
conditions along Interstate 80 between Cheyenne and Rawlins due to
snow and blowing snow. At this time, light to moderate snow
accumulations will be possible. If temperatures trend colder than
current guidance supports, snow totals may be higher. Persons
planning travel across southeast Wyoming Thursday night through
Saturday morning should monitor the latest forecast information
on this developing winter weather event.
