The Daily Breeze: Wishing it were a snow day

Hey there!

It’s chilly outside and we’re all hoping for a snow day! Of course, in Wyoming, there’s not quite enough snow for that yet, but it’s fun to dream. However, it is enough snow to make the roads slippery, so drive safe out there today!

Check out what the Breeze blew in today: see the story about the new mayor of Casper, read about how Natrona County is working on making Casper a filmmaking destination, and check out the story on the owl that was saved by the Utah Highway Patrol!

Casper is expecting a high of 16°F today but it will drop to -5°F later in the day with snow this morning transitioning into more snow showers this afternoon. That Breeze is coming from the NNE at 15 to 25 mph. We are under a winter weather advisory, with 1 to 3 inches accumulating.
