Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Riverton WY
0751 PM MST Sat Dec 10 2016


Here are updated preliminary snowfall totals. The ending time for
snowfall totals below range from Saturday morning to 4 PM Saturday
afternoon, depending upon the data source. Additional data will be
received Sunday morning, and a new statement will be issued Sunday.

Note: SnoTELS (Snow Telemetry) are remote sensing sites in high
mountain watersheds. Snowfall data from SNOTELS are estimated
based on snow water equivalent.

Strong winds finally infiltrated Casper early Saturday morning,
eroding away the arctic air. Gusty winds also occurred this afternoon
across the area, while Johnson County started to increase as the
cold front entered northern Wyoming this evening.

These winds are listed further below, past the snowfall totals.
