SummaryMonitoring & Reporting Snowfall | Safety

There is a band of snow streaming across Togwotee Pass this morning with locally heavy snow falling within the band. This band could continue to regenerate through the day as conditions remain favorable for snow bands to form and stream off of the higher elevations. The Bighorn Basin could also get into the mix as bands may form and stream off of the Absarokas later this afternoon.

If you are travelling across the state today and Saturday, please monitor WYDOT's website for more information on the road conditions, and keep an eye on our website for updates on Winter Weather or Wind Highlights. For more information on the wintery weather expected this weekend, please take a look at our latest video briefing.
