CASPER, Wyo. – Schools, businesses and some government offices closed on Wednesday as a spring snowstorm moved through much of Wyoming.

Natrona County Public Schools and Casper College closed, as did many businesses and Natrona County government offices. City of Casper offices remained open, but Casper Police declared a “snow day,” asking people involved in minor accidents to gather phone numbers and insurance information instead of calling the CPD.

The National Weather Service in Riverton expected more than a foot of heavy, wet snow to drop since starting late Tuesday night. The forecast says much of the snowfall should taper off after noon.
