CASPER, Wyo — Weather is not expected to adversely impact holiday travel to a significant degree this week in the central and western Wyoming region, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Riverton.

Light to moderate snowfall is expected in the west beginning Wednesday night, NWS said, with the heaviest amounts falling overnight.

NWS says that snowfall amounts as yet are not expected to warrant advisory status.

Dry weather is expected elsewhere, except in the north where very light snow could impact the Bighorn mountains.

Overall temperatures for the week should be seasonal over the west to slightly above average east, NWS said.

“The main issue Wednesday will be strong to possibly high wind especially from southeast Fremont into Natrona counties, and perhaps the Cody Foothills,” NWS said.
