A cold front will bring areas of rain and snow across the west today. As this front pushes eastward, so will rain showers. Some areas across the west and east may see rain mix with and possibly change to all snow at times. Little to no snow accumulation is expected across the lower elevations, however, this might be the first flakes of the season.
Another disturbance could return chances for rain and snow later this week. Stay tuned for the latest details.” – NOAA, Riverton, WY today
