...Final Snowfall Totals and Peak Wind Gusts Across Western and
Central Wyoming from the early season winter storm...

A strong early season wintry weather system produced widespread
light snow across the region with upslope favored areas seeing
heavier snow. The highest snow totals generally occurred in the
foothills adjacent to the east slopes of the Wind River Mountains
and around Casper and Casper Mountain. The cold front the pushed
through the state Monday also produced strong wind gusts across the
area, most notably southwest Wyoming.
