... Are you dreaming of a white christmas?...

The atmosphere is shaping up for a white Christmas this year. A well
developed storm system is expected to track east across the central
and southern rockies Wednesday night through Thursday night...
although the exact track of the storm is still rather uncertain.
However... confidence is high enough at this time that sufficient
enough atmospheric ingredients will come together to produce a
likelihood of measurable snowfall across western and central Wyoming
Wednesday night through Thursday night... with the bulk of the
snowfall falling on Christmas day.

Snowfall totals by Friday morning are expected to range from 6 to 12
inches in the western Wyoming mountains... around 6 inches in the
western valleys... 5 to 10 inches in the mountains east of The Divide
and 2 to 4 inches at the lower elevations east of The Divide. During
the next few days... the finer details of the storm will unfold.

If you plan on traveling on Christmas eve or Christmas day... be
prepared for slick and snow covered roads and poor visibility.
Bring extra food and water along with a winter survival kit. Try to
reach your destination before the snow flies if at all possible so
that you can enjoy the snowfall in the Comfort of your friends or
families home.

... Scattered snow showers today...

Scattered snow showers will stream off the mountains today. Some of
the stronger more persistent bands could result in periods of heavy
snow with over inch per hour rates over short distances. The
formation and movement of these bands is difficult to predict ahead
of time but there could be significant snow accumulation from these
bands. The most likely areas that will be impacted include the area
between Shoshoni and Casper... Wind River Canyon... the South Pass and
Oregon Buttes area southeast to portions of Interstate 80 near Point
of Rocks... and the Cody foothills into the Bighorn Basin.

Be prepared for sudden drops in visibility and rapid snow
accumulations at times through this afternoon creating slick Road
conditions. In addition... expect erratic and gusty winds near the
stronger bands with gusts over 35 mph possible. The snow banding is
expected to continue through sunset tonight.
