Building a Weather-Ready Nation
Another windy snow storm is sweeping across the state. Expect off and on snow across the west and off and on windy periods along and east of the Divide through the weekend.

A cold front and a more organized band of snow will sweep west to east on Sunday, possibly bringing some measurable precipitation east of the Divide and lowering temperatures back below freezing across the entire forecast area. This system will quickly exit early Monday morning, leaving behind a dry and comparatively mild day for Monday, but strong southwest flow will also help maintain windy conditions east of the Divide.
The Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center is keeping a close eye on the storm as the snow pack remains unstable. Please use caution if venturing out into the back country this weekend, or delay your trip until conditions become more stable.
Roads and passes across western and central Wyoming could have restricted travel or could close during this event.
