Winter Weather Advisory for Wyoming Today

National Weather Service Riverton WY
140 AM MDT Tue Jun 13 2017

...Late Season Accumulating Snow Expected for Western Wyoming

.An unseasonably strong late Spring storm will produce
significant snowfall across the Western Wyoming Mountains through
today. Sharply colder moisture laden air will be circulating
around the back side of an upper low pressure system as it tracks
across the northern border of Wyoming. This much colder air will
also lower snow levels all the way down to the valley floor at
times early this morning. Snow amounts will likely range anywhere
from from 3 to 10 inches above 7500 feet along with some isolated
amounts of up to 12 inches in the Tetons by this evening. A trace
to 2 inches of snow is expected to accumulate in the Western
Wyoming Valleys by noon today before melting off this afternoon.

* TIMING...The precipitation should changeover to all snow this
  morning. Snow will continue through the day.

* TOTAL SNOWFALL...4 to 10 inches in the Tetons along with
  isolated amounts of 12 inches. 4 to 8 inches on the Gros
  Ventre Range.

* MAIN IMPACT...Highway 22 over Teton Pass will likely become
  slick and snow covered. 20 to 30 mph winds along with 40 mph
  gusts could produce blowing and drifting snow. Wind chills
  will likely be as low as 15 to 25 degrees in exposed areas.


A winter weather advisory for snow means periods of snow will
cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered
and slick roads with limited visibilities. Slow down, and allow
extra time to reach your destination. Check the latest road
conditions at or by dialing 5 1 1.
