A heavy snowstorm that will bring several inches of snow to western, northern and central Wyoming is heading into the state.

National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Hattings in Riverton is keeping an eye on the storm.

“It looks like the main trouble spot is mostly going to be in the central portion of the state. The most snow will be from Lander-Riverton and running through Casper and Douglas. And also, obviously, in some of the higher elevations from the Wind River range over to Casper Mountain.”

Much of the snowfall will hit Tuesday night. Hattings said it will bring over a foot of snow to central and northern Wyoming. He added that travel could be difficult.

“We are expecting a lot of snow and also a lot of wind with this storm, it could cause blowing and drifting and could make travel hazardous during that period.”

Hattings said the recent snowstorms are not unusual. He added that March is typically Wyoming’s wettest month.
