Another Winter System to Impact Wyoming Friday & Saturday

The next Pacific storm system began to move into western Wyoming Friday morning, bringing areas of light snowfall in the west.

Snow levels will drop overnight as a cold front moves across the region, allowing any rain to change back to snow in the valleys. Snow will also intensify as this cold front moves across the region.

Locations east of the divide will see dry and windy conditions again throguh Saturday morning. Clouds will increase as the cold front passes during the early morning hours, with a chance for rain or snow showers Saturday morning. Snow accumulations east of the divide are expected to remain light.
