A Pacific-moisture laden westerly flow brought heavy snow to western and parts of northern Wyoming. Mountain areas of far west Wyoming recorded two to four feet of snow while many valleys measured one to two foot amounts. Portions of the western and northern Big Horn Basin also saw heavy snow. East of the Continental Divide, Cody was the big winner with snowfall ranging anywhere from around 8 inches to about a foot. Click here to see a complete list of storm total snowfall.
Some lingering light snow will continue in west and northwest Wyoming, mainly in the mountains, through Tuesday with only light accumulations expected. The next potentially strong winter storm will hit the region Wednesday. In a similar scenario to this last system, Pacific moisture and a series of weather systems will combine to produce snowfall in the west through Friday. While the snow comes down in the west, areas east of the Divide could see strong, gusty wind. The main area of concern will be the stretch from Rock Springs to Casper where winds could top 50 mph.
