Graphical depiction of the weather story for today.

Light snow across far southeast Wyoming and southern Nebraska Panhandle will end early this morning. A low pressure system will move east to near the Four Corners region tonight and through the central Rockies by Monday night. Light snow will redevelop west of the Laramie Range tonight and become more widespread and heavier Monday. The snow will mix with rain Monday afternoon for lower elevations before changing to snow Monday night when a strong arctic cold surge arrives. The snow will be heavy at times for the higher elevations out west. By the time the snow tapers off Tuesday night, there is the potential for one to two feet of snow over the Snowy and Sierra Madres, with 6 to 12 inches for nearby valleys and foothills. For the remainder of southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska Panhandle, 3 to 8 inches will be possible. Gusty northerly winds up to 30 mph will create areas of blowing and drifting snow. The combination of falling and blowing snow will impact travel for much of the area Monday night and Tuesday. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from late tonight through late Tuesday night for southern Carbon and southwest Albany counties. Stay tuned to the latest forecasts as winter weather hazards may will be upgraded and/or expanded north and east later today.
