There’s a chance of snow starting Friday and through the weekend, says the NWS.

In a statement the NWS says “the next storm system will impact mainly western Wyoming with accumulating snow likely, especially in the mountains. The snow may spread east of the Continental Divide Friday into Saturday.”

The latest snow has had minor impact on road travel, with black ice warnings along I-80 between Cheyenne and Granger, and black ice on I-90 between Sheridan and Gillette.

Wyoming Blvd, or “Outer Drive” in Casper has a no unnecessary travel warning.
