Sustained westerly winds of 30 to 40 mph with gusts to around 55
mph will continue through this afternoon along the Interstate 80
corridor near Arlington and over the Summit between Cheyenne and
Laramie. Strong winds gusting to 55 MPH will also be possible on
Interstate 25 near Bordeaux. These strong winds will produce areas
of blowing and drifting snow, which will lower visibilities to
less than a half mile and cause slick road conditions. A Blowing
Snow Advisory is in effect for these areas through 5PM today.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation advises no light trailer
traffic due to wind speeds above 50 mph. These winds may cause
loss of vehicle control or a blow over to high profile vehicles
traveling empty or with a light load. Drivers of such vehicles are
advised to delay travel.
