Colder weather on the way
November 9, 2014
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the northern and western mountains from 11PM Sunday, November 9th through 5AM Tuesday (Veteran’s Day). A cold front will bring snow to the north and west late Sunday evening and overnight. Commuters across north and central Wyoming will likely encounter slick, icy roads and limited visibility in blowing snow Monday morning. Light snow will continue into Tuesday. Bitterly cold temperatures will occur east of the Continental Divide into central Wyoming from Monday night through Thursday morning. Chances for snowfall will increase across the western mountains and in the southwest on Thursday and Friday. Another cold front moves through northern and central Wyoming on Saturday bringing colder temperatures. Monday’s daytime high will struggle to get to 33 in Pinedale and dropping into the week, with chances of snow. By Wednesday, nighttime temperatures will drop into negative numbers to -7. Prepare for a dramatic difference from Sunday’s toasty shirtsleeve weather as winter finally makes its first appearance to the Upper Green River Valley in Wyoming.
