CASPER, Wyo. — The first real shot of snow for the fall season fell through much of Wyoming on Tuesday.

Central Wyoming was put under a winter storm warning as several inches of snow were expected to fall on the area through Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service in Riverton said Casper Mountain could see more than 12 inches by tomorrow.

The NWS said on Tuesday afternoon that up to 8 inches had already fallen on the Casper area through today.

The weather closed numerous roadways across the state, including Interstate 25 from Casper to Buffalo around noon.

Snow is expected to taper off by late morning Wednesday, but overnight temperatures will dip below freezing, with a low of 21 degrees predicted tomorrow night and 17 degrees overnight Thursday.
