At 511 PM MDT, snow showers continue from southern Carbon County
Wyoming northward through the Saratoga, Elk Mountain, Arlington

traveling through these areas should be prepared to slow down due to
reduced visibilities.

National Forest area of southern Wyoming through early evening. A
few inches of snowfall are possible, however area roadways are
expected to remain passable.

The snow showers will taper off during the early evening.
