More snow expected for high country
September 20, 2006
The National Weather Service (NWS) is advising that more precipitation is on the way for western Wyoming. A series of storm systems this week will bring rain, and possibly snow, to the high country.
The southwest mountains of western Wyoming could see 2-4 inches of snow. The Tetons may get 1-3 inches, mainly above 8000 feet Wednesday or Thursday.
Another storm system will move into the state on Friday bringing more precipitation. Colder air will move in behind this next system, lowering the snow level to the valley floor in western Wyoming on Thursday night. Some snow may be possible in the foothills during the day on Friday, depending on the track this storm system takes, the NWS advises.
