Snowstorm takes aim at southeast Wyoming

March 1, 2019

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Southeast Wyoming is now the target of the latest snowstorm to hit Wyoming.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for the Interstate 80 corridors, including Cheyenne, Laramie, Centennial and Saratoga.

Six to 10 inches (15.2 to 25.4 centimeters) of snow is possible with up to 3 feet (91.4 centimeters) in the mountains.

Elsewhere, the big snowfall this past week in the northwest part of the state continues to cause problems.

An avalanche Friday morning closed Teton Pass on Wyoming 22 west of Jackson.

And two skiers were rescued about 3 a.m. Friday after they ducked under a boundary rope the previous day and got lost in Grand Teton National Park. No one was hurt.
