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

...WINTER STORM WATCHES...WARNINGS AND ADVISORIES IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY
AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE MONDAY NIGHT FOR AREAS WEST OF LARAMIE RANGE...

.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.
