Winter Weather Advisory

Statement as of 4:10 AM MST on January 23, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EST on January 24, 2017


... Winter Weather Advisory now in effect until 5 PM MST Tuesday...

* timing... periods of snow... heavy at times... through the day
today... with an emphasis across the western slopes of the Wind
River mountains. Snow, heavy at times, will continue through
tonight and Tuesday with an emphasis across the eastern slopes
of the Wind River mountains... before finally tapering off late
Tuesday.

* Snow totals... 8 to 14 inches with isolated higher amounts.

* Wind and visibility... southwest winds 15 to 25 mph will cause
blowing and drifting snow with visibility below a quarter mile
this morning. Winds are expected to decrease this afternoon
reducing the amount of blowing snow... but visibility in heavier
snow bursts will still be under a half mile at times. Then
tonight, after the passage of a cold front, winds will shift to
the northeast at speeds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts of 35 mph
causing considerable blowing and drifting snow with the visibility
reduced to below one quarter of a mile and occasionally down to
zero.

* Main impact... roads and highways will become slick and snow
packed and travel will be difficult at times with reduced
visibility in snowfall, and blowing and drifting snow,
especially over South Pass.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow means that
visibilities will be severely limited due to strong winds blowing
snow around. Use caution when traveling... especially in open
areas. Check the latest Road conditions at wyoroad.Info or by
