Thanksgiving Weekend Snowstorm

November 27-28th, 2004 - A strong Pacific storm system dug into the intermountain west on Saturday spreading snow initially across southwest Wyoming, and into central Wyoming by early Saturday evening. Snowfall intensified overnight, especially across north through east facing mountain ranges. Adjacent plains were also impacted...though snowfall totals decreased rapidly away from the higher terrain.  The following is a list of snowfall totals reported to the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Riverton.  The staff at NWS Riverton would like to thank all of our dedicated spotters who make completion of this report easier.
