CASPER, Wyo. — Casper could see 2-4 inches or more of snow on Tuesday with the next round of winter weather coming into the state Monday evening, said the National Weather Service (NWS) in Riverton.

Rain should transition to snow in Natrona County in the overnight hours before Tuesday morning. Precipitation should be all snow by 3:00 p.m. Tuesday.

Snowfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible in Natrona and southeast Fremont counties, “with locally higher amounts possible in heavier bands of snow,” the NWS said.

There is uncertainty about the probable locations of the snow bands, but on Sunday the NWS predicted a 68% chance of Casper getting at least 2 inches of snow, and a 52% chance of getting 4 inches or more.

Tuesday’s forecast high temperature in Casper is 34 degrees.

Accumulations will be minimal “due to the marginally cold-enough temps and warm ground temperatures thanks to several days in the 50s and 60s.”

“By Tuesday morning, precipitation will be widespread across the region and quickly end from west to east Tuesday night.”
