CASPER, Wyo. — Snow is falling on Casper Mountain on Tuesday morning and up to 23 inches could be on the ground by the time the storm ends, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Riverton’s forecast.
Snow could be heavy at times during the day Tuesday, with snow expected to continue into the night. 9-23 inches of total accumulation is expected on the mountain.
Lower elevations in Natrona County could also see some significant snow if temperatures drop enough to cause the rain to switch over to snow. The NWS in Riverton’s Winter Storm Warning for the area says that 12-16 inches are possible along and south of Wyoming Boulevard. 8-12 inches are possible in other areas of the county by 11 p.m. Tuesday.
The storm could make for difficult travel along routes such as Interstate 25, Wyoming Boulevard and U.S. Highway 20/26 in the Casper area.
The NWS in Riverton notes that temperatures are expected to be highly variable in Natrona with a change over to snow possible during the morning.
“If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency,” the NWS in Riverton said. “The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 511.”
