...WIDESPREAD SNOWFALL AND VERY COLD TEMPERATURES EXPECTED LATE THIS
WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...

A strong cold front is expected to move south across the area on Saturday.
Along with the coldest temperatures so far this season, widespread
accumulating snow is forecast beginning Saturday afternoon north of
Interstate 80, and towards late Saturday evening along the
Interstate 80 corridor. Snow accumulations will generally be light
to locally moderate outside of the mountains. In the mountains,
some much needed snowfall is expected with 6 to 12 inches of snow
accumulation.

Slick and snow packed roadways can be expected beginning late Saturday
afternoon across southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska which will
likely result in travel impacts through Sunday morning. Visibilities
will be reduced below one mile at times in snow and some patchy
fog.
