Cheyenne National Weather Service: Snow Could Impact Travel

The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service is warning concerning the chance for worsening travel conditions in southeast Wyoming Saturday night and Sunday, between Cheyenne and Laramie especially.

While heavy snow isn’t expected except above 8500 feet, the ongoing service is warning visitors to monitor the elements before hitting the highway.

The service issued this statement on Saturday:

Snow chances increase tonight as a considerably stronger upper level disturbance tracks over the central Rockies tonite. We will have to absorb the potential dependence on THE WINTER SEASON Advisories for locally heavier snow bands and slick roads over the higher elevations to add the Interstate 80 Summit between Cheyenne and Laramie tonight.”
