Winter Storm/Blizzard Impacted Western and Central Wyoming - Feb 13-14

A winter storm affected much of western and central Wyoming from late Tuesday night through Thursday morning.  The mountains generally received 5 to 12 inches with isolated higher amounts.   Across the lower elevations, amounts varied greatly from only a trace to around 9 inches.  The heaviest snow over the lower elevations occurred near Casper, Cody, Lander and Rock Springs where 5 to 9 inches fell.   Strong north to northeast wind caused considerable blowing and drifting of snow.  The northeast winds were particularly strong across Sweetwater County where winds were sustained near 40 mph for several hours with gusts near 60 mph causing blizzard conditions across much of the county.    The following maps and table are preliminary snowfall totals through 4 p.m. February 14.
